Why Missouri Will Win
This is now the Tigers’ bowl game.
There was hope for the NCAA to reverse its ridiculous decision to punish Missouri for self-reported and fixed transgressions, but no … the bowl ban this season holds.
Little Rock will have to serve as the place to have some fun playing a little more football.
Arkansas shouldn’t be anything more than a light scrimmage with an offense that can’t move the ball, a defense that can’t stop anyone on third downs, and hurt mostly be a painfully inefficient and ineffective passing game that can’t keep the pace with anyone.
Mizzou might be having a whole ton of problems on its own, but the defense is playing well. The secondary will clamp down, it won’t allow any long marches, and the run D is holding everyone to around 130 yards per game.
Why Arkansas Will Win
Didn’t you used to be the Missouri offense?
Kelly Bryant hasn’t been the same over the second half of the season after getting banged up a bit, and the passing game has stalled over the last five games.
How bad have things gotten?
Missouri only went under the 400 total yardage mark once over the first half of the season, and then everything went haywire in the strange loss to Vanderbilt. Ever since then, the O hasn’t managed 300 yards.
The passing game has been bad, the ground attack worse – the Tigers haven’t rushed for 100 yards in three straight games – and there’s nothing that’s consistently working well.
The Arkansas defense should finally get a bit of a break, but …
What’s Going To Happen
Missouri’s running game is about to get healthy.
Everyone from WKU to Kentucky to Auburn to Colorado State has been able to rush for 200 yards, and the Tigers aren’t about to get too complicated about its attack. It’s going to line up, blast away, and let the defense take care of the rest.
However, Mizzou is 0-4 on the road this year, and it’s not above clunking against a bad team – witness the 21-14 loss to Vandy.
Arkansas will keep this close, but it won’t be able to come through late.
