Whoever thought a bye week would seem so long?
Week five of the College Football season came and went and Missouri is better off for having sat it out. We covered a lot during the bye, and more this week, but there’s nothing left other than a contest between two football teams.
The Tigers enter as the overwhelming favorite, but Troy can be plucky. They’ll need to be firing on all cylinders again, on both sides of the ball, if they want to meet the Vegas expectations.

Missouri-Troy football: Betting odds, predictions
As of Friday evening, Missouri is a 24.5-point favorite over Troy, according to VegasInsider.com. The total points (over/under) is 67.5.
PICK ‘EM! Score, over/under (66.5) and MVP prediction.
Josh Matejka: This is a weird game to pick because Troy’s offense is legitimately good, but it also might stutter against Missouri’s defense. Still, with the weakness of Troy’s D, it’s hard not to see the Tigers and Trojans engaging in a minor shootout. I’ll say Missouri puts up 51 to Troy’s 31. Kelly Bryant logs his second MVP performance of the season with four touchdowns passing and one rushing.
Mitch Hill: I think the MVP will either be JJ or Nance. Let’s go with Nance just because. Troy does not have a great secondary, so I think he has a huge day and the passing attack wows many. I am, however, going to say under 66.5 just because I don’t think Troy can score enough. Final Score is Mizzou 38 Troy 13
Ryan Faller: I’ll take the Tigers, 49-13, in the under. Larry Rountree III (editor’s note: his NAME is Larry Three-Sticks, right Mitch?) is due for a near-200-yard game; let him pound the rock most of the day.
