The #17 LSU Tigers (1-1) head to Columbia to face the Missouri Tigers (0-2) Saturday afternoon in a game that was originally scheduled to be played in Baton Rouge but was moved due to Hurricane Delta. How will the battle of the Tigers play out? Let’s take a look!
HOW TO WATCH
Time: Noon ET
Spread: LSU -14
Mizzou comes into this game looking to avoid their first 0-3 start in over 30 years. Obviously this season is very weird, and not at all an ideal situation for the first season of a new head coach, but that’s certainly not something Mizzou wants.
The Tigers have had their share of problems this year. They do seem to have picked a quarterback finally, though. The past two weeks, the depth chart read Shawn Robinson OR Connor Bazelak. This week’s depth chart, however, has Bazelak listed above Robinson with no “OR” in between. The redshirt freshman got the bulk of the snaps last week against Tennessee, finishing the day 13-21 with 218 passing yards in the 35-12 loss to the Tennessee Volunteers.
Mizzou may get a small boost from this turning into an unexpected home game, but the odds certainly aren’t in their favor.
After week one’s surprising loss to Mississippi State, the Tigers surged back last week with a 41-7 win over Vanderbilt. Myles Brennan looked razor sharp with four passing touchdowns, and LSU showed that they have a cavalcade of receivers ready to impact the game this season.
Having this game moved due to the hurricane likely won’t impact LSU all that much. Mizzou is likely not much better than Vanderbilt. As such, LSU should roll to a comfortable victory.
