Ok fans, this is it, Mizzou's last chance to get that power 5 conference win before they head into SEC play. And almost as if on cue, the most battered, bruised and beaten opponent on Mizzou's nonconference schedule comes to St Louis for the annual Clobbering on Clark Ave.

So, you've read Sam's preview and feel all warm and cuddly inside, the facts he drops are important, so take them to heart. Now here are my keys to that elusive Power 5 win tonight.

Mizzou Keys to Victory

1) It's a home game! St. Louis is in Missouri, so the Tigers have that going for them.

2) Illinois has a longer ride to the game, bus travel is taxing on the legs, Mizzou will be more well rested and leg comfortable, it's science.

3) Score more points, it's never hurt in the past.

There you go, the path is now set for victory! Feel free to leave your trifecta picks and predictions in the comments below.

Let's get at it Mizzou, I mean look at how excited Rosburg is below, grab that excitement and pull it in you and direct it towards our Tigers...THEY NEED YOU!!!
