The Missouri Tigers are 2-5 so far into the season. Their opponents for this game, the Connecticut Huskies, are 3-4. Both the teams need this win. These two teams are meeting for the first time since their last meeting in 2015.
The Missouri Tigers recently did away with their five-game losing streak with a 68-21 victory against the Idaho Vandals. Their only other win was their season opener.
Drew Lock leads the team in passing yards with 1,190 yards along with 23 touchdowns and 8 interceptions. Damarea Crockett leads the team in rushing yards with 481 yards on 80 carries along with a couple of touchdowns. J’Mon Moore leads the team in receiving yards with 31 receptions for 580 yards along with 5 touchdowns.
Have the Tigers got what it takes to beat the Huskies? We don’t know so far. In some aspects, the Tigers hold much better chances of a victory than the Huskies do in this game. However, there are a lot of things that are working against the Tigers.
The Connecticut Huskies are on a two-game win streak. They are looking forward to having their third win in a row. Their last game was a 20-14 home win against the Tulsa Golden Hurricane.
Eyes will be on season leaders in passing yards, rushing yards, and receiving yards. They are Bryant Shirreffs, Nate Hopkins, and Arkeel Newsome, respectively.
Although there are solid signs that Missouri can win, despite their misleading 2-5 score, the UConn team also has its own weapons. The Huskies have a defense to be proud of. They can ensure that the Missouri Tigers win no SEC games this year.
Nevertheless, the now-weaker Tigers are a stiff competition and need to be played carefully for a chance at victory.
