LIGHT JESSE GOLD! #Mizzou downs the defending champions!#MIZ x #NewZou pic.twitter.com/ni0e2zxzbs— Mizzou Football (@MizzouFootball) October 10, 2020
I said before the game that I just want Mizzou Football to be fun again. The first few weeks were not fun... THIS was fun. Connor Bazelak was throwing dimes around the field, and the defense was challenged by a high octane LSU offense. But they came up HUGE on the goal line on four straight downs, standing up two runs and knocking down two passes to clinch the win.
For a program dealing with missing starters due to COVID and injury to come out and play with that level of energy and enthusiasm and put it to the reigning National Champions... it shows a bright future for Eli Drinkwitz and where he wants to take this program.
More coverage to come and soon! But for now, celebrate Mizzou fans!
