It looks like Mike Leach has things progressing well for his team. They have had some hard luck this season. State will get better as he gets the horses for his offense. This year’s Bulldog team has a really good defense and there’s no telling how many games MSU would have won if Leach’s offense had been clicking at top level. Missouri’s got a first-year head coach too in Eliah Drinkwitz. It looks like he’s going to help lead the Tigers back to the winning way of former Tiger head coach Gary Pinkel’s teams. The SEC is so competitive though. For this game I’m going with Missouri. They seem to be a little more well-rounded team. It should be a fairly close game.
