Gameday. That’s it. That’s the Tweet.— Sammy Stava (@StavaonSTL) August 31, 2023
And the Tigers are one of few teams in the country (as of right now) that can say that they are 1-0.
With a 35-10 win over South Dakota, Missouri has now won 14 consecutive non-conference games at home which dates back to October 21st, 2017 — according to Mizzou’s Game Notes.
The Tigers also improved their unblemished record to 22-0 against FCS opponents since 1992 — as Jaden Lewis notes.
Around 43 hours until kickoff. #Mizzou is 21-0 against FCS opponents since 1992, with the average score being 50-13.— Jaden Lewis (@Jaden_Lewis29) August 30, 2023
Some highlights: The first touchdown of the season? Brady Cook to Mekhi Miller for six.
Cody Schrader made it a 21-3 game with a TD run with 1:48 remaining in the 2nd quarter.
Let Brady Cook? Yes sir. He made it a 28-3 lead with this TD run right before the first half ended.
The last touchdown of the night? Sam Horn’s first career TD pass......to Luther Burden. He’s HIM!
Are there question marks after this performance? Well, of course! It wasn’t all that impressive, but it’s only Week 1 — and the Tigers are 1-0. That’s all that matters. Next up is Middle Tennessee next Saturday night. 6:00 at Faurot Field.
