Comments

After a disappointing opening loss at Wyoming, Missouri seems to have turned things around. The Tigers are starting to look like the team that many college football analysts believe they’d be for the season. South Carolina coming off a hard-fought game with Alabama. Playing Bama can take a lot of a team. Consider too that the Gamecocks have upcoming games with Georgia, Florida, Texas A&M and Clemson. Ouch. I think Missouri wins this game but Carolina will put up a good fight.
