Comments

Missouri had a 2nd quarter meltdown at Wyoming that led to a scolding hot opening loss to a non-power conference team. Meanwhile, West Virginia struggled to beat FCS James Madison. Give Missouri the edge here because WVU has a poor rushing offense. They gained 34 yards in 24 rushes against James Madison. Mizzou’s more balanced offenese coupled with the game being played in Columbia, should give them the edge in this game.
