LINE: Missouri -6.5, o/u: 57
Missouri got bowl eligible last week.
Considering what a grind it was to get there after a 3-3 start, it’s a solid accomplishment. It whacked around Memphis, shocked Florida in The Swamp, and held on against Vanderbilt.
Tennessee would like to do some of that bowl eligibility thing, too.
The Vols might not be pretty, and they might need another year or so to kick it all in under Jeremy Pruitt, but they’ve been able to win two straight and three of their last five games with an improving passing game, some okay-enough line play, and a D that’s keeping most games close.
It’s the final home game of the year – unless you want to include the invasion at Vanderbilt next week. Tennessee will keep it ugly, but ramp up the pressure on the lines to hang on, give Mizzou QB Drew Lock a bad day, and get that sixth win.
