PowerMizzou: Zo Knows Nevada
Does playing somewhere with high altitude have a big effect?
ZO: It does believe it or not. One of the funniest post game moments happened when we played at New Mexico in 2006. Xzavie, Brian Smith, Tank, Stryker, and myself were "self diagnosed" with altitude sickness. Xzavie and me nearly passed out and Smitty couldn't see (probably blinded from a 4 sack game) The high altitude makes your chest feel like your shoulder pads are way too tight and you don't even have your shoulder pads on yet! Luckily Coach Ivey has developed a top secret way of getting you ready for the high altitude.

You gotta see this guy
Missouri loses Chase Daniel, and they improve at quarterback? Looks like it, as 6-foot-5 Blaine Gabbert is bigger, has a better arm, runs more and has had a better start (8 touchdowns and 0 interceptions in 3 wins) than Daniel. The Tigers are feeling lucky in Reno tonight (6 p.m., ESPN) as they beat Nevada 69-17 last year.

KC Star (Blair Kerkhoff): Missouri has been September's team
Southern California would love some of Missouri’s September aura.
The Tigers will have played fewer nonleague games on campus over the last four years than Texas, Oklahoma, Nebraska and Kansas.
Of that group only the Sooners will have played more BCS opponents, and Oklahoma has to beat Miami next week to match the Tigers’ five victories in those games. Kansas also has taken nearly full advantage of its slate as it prepares to face the most difficult nonleague opponent this season, Southern Mississippi, on Saturday. The Jayhawks have won all 12 at home in the four-year stretch and 15 overall.

The Trib: Pair of juco transfers making impact
Jarrell Harrison will be even more excited to take the field tomorrow night, even though the crowd won’t be nearly as big. The Las Vegas native is returning to his home state and expects more than 30 family members and friends to be in the stands in Reno.
It remains to be seen exactly how much playing time Harrison will get backing up Jackson at strong safety, but it’s clear his role should continue to increase in the coming weeks. Once Ricks, who is expected to play tomorrow night, returns to full strength, Missouri might even have the luxury of mixing and matching all four safeties to keep them fresh.

Football WR Dezmon Briscoe (6-3, 200) vs. Basketball F Markieff Morris (6-9, 232) and Marcus Morris (6-8, 225) (The Morris Twins... of Doom!): You can't tell the twins apart, so they'll fight together in tandem, using sneaky Scorpion/Reptile type tricks.This is going to get nasty. The twins are likely to attempt to throw Briscoe down the stairs. If they land that finisher, it's over. There's no pass interference if your receiver is lying at the bottom of a stairwell with two broken legs. BUT, Briscoe does have some advantages here. He's used to being double-teamed, and his speed and agility might enable him to incapacitate one while wrapping the other in a rear naked choke. But when you're fighting twins, man, it's double your pain, double your fun.
WINNER: MORRIS TWINS
