Missouri vs Louisiana Tech Game Preview

Why Louisiana Tech Will Win

Here comes the offense.

New head coach Sonny Cumbie will get hs offense to throw and throw some more - former TCU transfer Matthew Downing and Texas Tech transfer Parker McNeil are still battling for the high-profile starting quarterback gig - with the receiving corps good enough to give the Tiger secondary problems.

The Mizzou lines should be able to do enough to force a win with two good scoring drives in the second half and two big defensive stops, but it's going to be more of a fight than the SEC side might like.
