Three weeks ago was the last time Mizzou suited up for a football game. Three long weeks. Think about it this way... the last time Mizzou played a football was before the election! Whew that feels like a long time ago.
But it’s here! And it’s BEAUTIFUL!

Josh Matejka: Who has 10 typing fingers and no confidence in this pick? That’s right — it’s this guy!
There are a myriad of ways I could see this game developing, and I don’t think any scenario is off the table. Maybe the least likely is a South Carolina blowout, but I still wouldn’t be shocked by anything. It all comes down to how long it takes Missouri to wake up. They’re the better team at this point, but are coming off a longer layoff than the Gamecocks. They’ve likely got more confidence as a group, though, which could help speed the recovery process.
Ultimately, I think Missouri is more likely to win than South Carolina, but I can’t see it being a fun game to watch. I especially don’t see Missouri pulling away at any point. I’d probably be more likely to push a -6 line, but it has since moved to -6.5, so I have to make a choice. I think Mizzou ends up covering... maybe? Idk, y’all, who knows anything anymore?
Nate Edwards: I find it hard to believe that either team wins by more than 3 here. Do you trust a team that hasn’t practiced in at least a week or a team that’s bad enough to kick their coach to the curb? I’ll say it’s the ugliest 28-27 win you can find, with the edge going to Missouri. But wow do I have no confidence in any read on this game at all.
Brandon Kiley: I’ve been absolutely terrible at picking Missouri games this year. I don’t think I’ve picked a single game correctly against the spread, honestly. But I’ll go ahead and take Missouri to win straight up and South Carolina to cover the spread. A 6.5-point spread just seems like a lot for a team like Missouri that still has plenty of weaknesses. I think they take care of business. But 6.5 points on the road is just too much to cover.
Missouri 31, South Carolina 26.
