Challenges for Missouri
If this game were being played in Columbia it might get interesting. However, in Tuscaloosa it’s far fetched that the Tigers could stay in the game. If the Tigers can play within 20 points of Bama it’ll be somewhat of a win for them.
Challenges for Alabama
The Crimson Tide’s challenge every week is to stay focused and prepare well for the next opponent. This week the Tide defense will need to keep Tiger QB Drew Lock under wraps. Lock average almost 300 yards a game passing with 11 TDs against just four picks.
Saturday’s game kicks off at 6 pm CT and can be seen on ESPN.
