Yes, that #Hashtag is #BeatMizzou.
Syracuse is now one game away from bowl eligibility, with two games left this season. The unfortunate part is that Missouri is also only one game away from bowling. And it's senior day. So something has to give.
Syracuse and Mizzou again look similar offensively. Mizzou probably would have some more wins were it not for the fact they are now playing in the SEC. Both these quarterbacks have the ability to play from behind. Interestingly though, DT Sheldon Richardson, Missouri's star defensive player, is out for violating team rules. Someone doesn't like class and structure. Either way, Syracuse has all the personal advantages, while Mizzou has all the intangibles. However, once again it comes down to either who scores last or who makes the least amount of mistakes. Both of these teams will score. The question is who can make the timely play. I'm going out on a limb and picking Syracuse in this one. While Syracuse has struggled on the road, this is a primetime game and Syracuse is poised and has more momentum heading into this game. I'm going with Syracuse over the Tigers 38 to 31.
This game will be available on ESPN U and on ESPN 3 if you aren't blacked out. It is in primetime at 7:00pm. I'm looking forward to a big double dip personally of live college football, then settling in with some alumni friends to watch Syracuse try and get back to that Pinstripe Bowl. Should be a fun Saturday for everyone involved.
