And it’s official! From the SEC’s announcement on Wednesday morning, it’s Mizzou and LSU Saturday at 11:00 a.m. CST in Columbia. Be there! (Okay, not everybody can).
Here is more info you need to know on MUTigers.com. This will still technically be considered an LSU home game.
In the SEC’s release, it says the game will be on an ESPN platform to be announced. I would expect that TV destination to be on ESPN2.
It was later announced that the Louisiana-Coastal Carolina game (originally scheduled for 11:00 a.m. CT on ESPN2) has been postponed until next Wednesday, which opens up an obvious TV spot for Missouri and LSU.
And how about this? Denver Broncos star linebacker Von Miller joined the Tiki And Tierney Show on CBS Sports Network Wednesday, and here’s what he had to say about his teammate Drew Lock. Very impressive.
"In my eyes, Drew [Lock] is the guy. And Drew has been the guy since day 1 since I first seen him... just being around him, he just has the superstar glow about him." @VonMiller joins @TikiAndTierney to discuss his thoughts on Broncos QB Drew Lock. pic.twitter.com/nmDObMW6Eo— CBS Sports Network (@CBSSportsNet) October 7, 2020
Lock is currently listed as questionable in Week 5 for the Broncos — Patriots, but he returned to practice on Wednesday for Denver. Let’s GO!
