The Line: Missouri Tigers +5.5 -- Over/Under:
The Missouri Tigers and the BYU Cougars face off on Saturday at Arrowhead Stadium in Week 11 College Football action.
The Missouri Tigers are 4-5 this season and they have lost their last four games. The Missouri offense is averaging 14.7 points and 282.6 yards per game and they have turned the ball over 12 times. Mizzou QB Drew Lock has completed 49.4 percent of his passes with three touchdowns and five interceptions. Ish Witter leads the Missouri rushing attack with 423 yards and J’Mon Moore has 23 receptions and Nate Brown has 20 catches and four touchdowns. The Missouri defense is allowing 14.6 points and 298.6 yards per game with eight interceptions, five fumble recoveries, and 26 sacks. Kentrell Brothers leads the Tigers with 117 tackles, Michael Scherer has 67 tackles, and Charles Harris and Walter Brady each have seven sacks. Missouri has simply struggled to move the football.
The BYU Cougars are 7-2 this season and they have won their last five games. The BYU offense is averaging 32.3 points and 440.9 yards per game and they have turned the ball over 11 times. Brigham Young QB Tanner Mangum has completed 63.5 percent of his passes with 15 touchdowns and seven interceptions. Algernon Brown leads the Cougars rushing game with 490 yards and eight touchdowns and Mitch Mathews is the top receiver with 40 catches and nine touchdowns. The BYU defense is allowing 22.7 points and 349.2 yards per game with 11 interceptions, four fumble recoveries, and 30 sacks. Michael Wadsworth leads the BYU defense with 58 tackles, Kai Nacua has four interceptions, and Bronson Kaufusi has 6.0 sacks. BYU has played one of the toughest schedules in the nation.
Missouri is 6-0 against the spread following a double-digit home loss, 2-7 against the spread in their last nine games, and 14-4 against the spread following a loss. BYU is 4-0 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread, 10-4-1 against the spread against a team with a losing record, and 0-4 against the spread against the SEC.
Missouri has been just horrible lately and I look for BYU to get the cover here in a physical game.
