Mizzou vs. North Texas: Five things to watch

Recommended Posts

4. Can Mizzou’s offensive line recapture September success?

Mizzou’s offensive line could use a mulligan. Tennessee’s defensive front terrorized the Tigers last week with continuous pressure on quarterback Connor Bazelak while yielding no running room for Badie. The line’s poor performance — 13 pressures allowed — surprised Drinkwitz and contributed to both of Bazelak’s interceptions. Pass protection had been a strength through the season’s first month, but whether the Tigers were out-schemed or just whipped at the point of attack, they couldn’t keep the orange out of the backfield. Bazelak doesn’t have the natural mobility to live life on the run, and without running alleys for Badie the Tigers don’t have a chance to sustain drives. Missouri tackles Javon Foster (left) and Hyrin White (right) face another challenge Saturday against North Texas identical twins Grayson and Gabriel Murphy, the Mean Green’s top edge rushers who, naturally, have posted the same number of pressures, a dozen each through four games.
