5 Thoughts: Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl Analysis

The only thing that diminished this game was the absence of Missouri RB Tyler Badie. Yeah, the Tigers probably win if its star was playing, but whatever – Army took down the SEC team.

Missouri had chance after chance after chance to all but put this away, but it settled for way too many field goals early as Army bent but didn’t break. Tiger QB Brady Cook almost got the job done on a thrilling late scoring drive, but the door was left open after a failed two point conversion.

Up 22-21, all the SEC defense had to do was come up with one more stop, but the Black Knight offense got it done, Cole Talley nailed a 41-yard walk-off field goal, and in the end, this became Exhibit A of why bowl games are fun.
