Comments

This will be the coaching debut for new Missouri head coach Eliah Drinkwitz. Drinkwitz and his team jump right into the fire against one of the most explosive teams in the country in Alabama. Missouri does have some good players but it won’t be enough to overcome the talent game. Alabama’s offense, in particular, will be almost unstoppable this season.
