Your Missouri Tigers are 7-1 AND are ranked No. 12 in the first College Football Playoff rankings of the season.
Their record and ranking are deserving of multiple players landing on national watch lists.
RB1 Cody Schrader has landed on the Burlsworth Trophy mid-season watch list. The award is given to the college football’s most outstanding player who started his career as a walk-on.
Meanwhile, QB1 Brady Cook has officially been named to the Davey O’Brien QB Class of 2023.
How about Kris Abrams-Draine? Arguably the best defensive back in the country has been named a Jim Thorpe Award Semi-Finalist
Of course, we can’t forget about Luther Burden — who On3Sports has tied for 7th in their Week 10 Heisman power rankings.
The stage is set for No. 12 Mizzou at No. 2 Georgia in Athens. Saturday can’t come soon enough. Stay tuned right here on Rock M Nation for more coverage throughout the week.
