It feels like it’s been a century, but in fact it’s been 243 days since Missouri Football last took the field. The lead up to every season is a time filled with the promise of a new season where anything is possible. This season for the Football Tigers has been built up with as much anticipation as any in recent memory.
If you’ve been ignoring all the preseason coverage you can get caught up below:
Unfortunately we’re waiting until tonight before the Tigers kick off in Laramie, but we’re here and it’s just hours away instead of days.

Missouri-Wyoming football: Betting odds, predictions
As of Friday evening, Missouri is a 17.5-point favorite over Wyoming, according to VegasInsider.com. The total points (over/under) is 54.5.
PICK ‘EM. Give us an over/under (53.5), score and MVP prediction.
Josh Matejka: I’d usually have a little more room to flip-flop, but I made my prediction on Before the Box Score this week, and I am nothing without my integrity. 41-17 Good Guys with Albert Okwuegbunam scoring two TDs and racking up 110 yards receiving.
Brandon Kiley: I’ll take the under on 53.5. I think this has the potential to be a game where Mizzou keeps the ball on the ground, they limit possessions and win 35-13. Give me Larry Rountree III as the MVP for week one. Like I said, I think the game plan is going to be fairly vanilla. Mizzou has one of the better running games in the country. The offensive line, Rountree, and Tyler Badie should control this game from start to finish. No need to ask Kelly Bryant to take more hits than he needs to in the first week against an inferior opponent.
Get the win, run the clock, and get ready for the home opener. It’s football time, baby!
Mitch Hill: Life is too short for the under. So it is going over. 38-17 Mizzou, and Larry Rountree III is the MVP.
Nate Edwards: I’ll go under, simply because I don’t think Wyoming will score anything past 17 and I don’t think we’ll try and run up the score once we hit 35. I’ll say 34-10 with Rountree, literally, running away with the MVP.
Tim Bussen: OVER, Mizzou 41, Wyoming 13, MVP: Larry Rountree III
Ryan Herrera: Over 53.5, Missouri wins 37-17 and Larry Rountree III leads all rushers to take home MVP.
Ryan Faller: Over/Under (53.5): Over
Prediction: Mizzou, 45-13
MVP: Kelly Bryant
Derek Dooley whips out the vanilla playbook, but Bryant runs for a score and throws for two more to give future defenses just enough of a taste.
Sean MacKinnon: I’m taking the over on 53.5. Mizzou wins the season opener on the road, final score: Mizzou 37 Wyoming 17
MVP: Kelly Bryant
