D-Line Zou: The Disruption of MU's Front 4 - David Morrison

When comparing Missouri and Utah at the top, as well, be sure to take into account that Utah -- despite all its negative plays forced -- ranks 75th in the country in yards allowed per game (403.1) and 55th in yards per play (5.36). Missouri ranks 16th (330.5) and eighth (4.60) in those categories.

So, does that mean Missouri is the best defensive line in the country? Maybe.

"Maybe"? I'm ridin' or dyin' with this defensive line.

Brothers hits his peak in November - Blake Toppmeyer

Brothers, a second-year starter, has been in the midst of several big plays this season. His three forced fumbles lead the Tigers, and his five tackles for loss pace Missouri’s linebackers. He leads the team and ranks fourth in the SEC with 103 tackles.

SEC, Big 12 teams facing off in second annual challenge - Steve Walentik

Missouri (4-3) at No. 22 Oklahoma (4-2), 8:30 p.m. (ESPNU)

This game isn’t going to make anyone forget about the battles Norm Stewart and Billy Tubbs’ teams or even Quin Snyder and Kelvin Sampson’s teams used to have when they were Big Eight or Big 12 Conference rivals. It’s clear by now Kim Anderson has a big rebuilding job on his hands after his Tigers have lost to UMKC and been blown out by Arizona and Purdue while struggling to get past the likes of Southeast Missouri State. It’s asking a lot for them to go into Norman, Okla., and hang with the Sooners, who finished second to No. 2 Wisconsin in the Battle 4 Atlantis. Oklahoma Coach Lon Kruger is still trying to find its way offensively in the early part of the season while integrating Houston transfer TaShawn Thomas into the lineup. Leading scorer Buddy Hield, a junior shooting guard, hasn’t been as efficient to start this season as he was as a sophomore, though he’s still averaging 16.7 points.

Center Ryan Rosburg tried to take charge against SEMO, but he got stuffed while trying to attack the basket at key moments of the game. If that happens against an Ohio Valley Conference team, what will happen in SEC play?

"When things aren’t going your way offensively, you’ve got to find a way to get it done on the defensive end, and I thought we did a great job of that," said Pingeton, who collected her 400th career victory, including her previous stops at Illinois State and NAIA St. Ambrose.
