Comments

I thought all the cupcake games were over. Well, Troy is not really a cupcake. Missouri has proved though, this season, that opponents don’t have to be cupcakes for the Tigers to win. I believe Mizzou will win but it won’t be by a rediculous score like we’ve seen in some of the SEC non-conference games this season.

Our Preseason Prediction

Missouri 21, Troy 20

In-Season 14Powers.com Prediction
