The Tigers and West Virginia couldn't quite live up to the 63-point over/under that the experts had forecasted. The Tigers blew past West Virginia 38-7 last Saturday. No one put up better numbers for Missouri than RB Larry Rountree III, who really brought his A game. He rushed for 99 yards and 1 touchdown on 18 carries.
Meanwhile, the oddsmakers predicted a rough contest for SE Missouri State, and boy were they were right. They have to be aching after a bruising 17-38 defeat to Montana State.
The Tigers are the favorite in this one, with an expected 35-point (!) margin of victory. Those taking them against the spread are banking on an outcome similar to that of the team's game last week, where they covered a 13.5-point spread.
Everything went Missouri's way against the Indians when the teams last met four seasons ago as they made off with a 34-3 victory. Will the Tigers repeat their success, or do the Indians have a better game plan this time around? We'll find out soon enough.
