TIGER GAMEDAY CENTRAL






***THREE KEYS AND A PREDICTION***


  • RUN WILD: Tennessee has one of the more porous run defenses in the SEC. Missouri has one of the best run offenses in the SEC. The passing game struggled last week and Maty Mauk is completing less than half his passes in two starts. With or without Henry Josey, the Tigers should look to run the ball right at the Volunteers.
  • MAKE DOBBS WIN IT: Tennessee quarterback Joshua Dobbs is making his first career start. I'm not sure an angry Michael Sam is the first man he wants to see. The Tigers need to take away the ground game, keep Dobbs in the pocket and force him to make quick decisions. If they can do that, they ought to be on the right end of the turnover battle.
  • WIN THE SECOND HALF: At least a mild hangover from the loss to South Carolina should be expected. It's human nature. Tennessee has played everyone but Alabama and Oregon close, and there's not much shame in that. Expect this to be a tight game at halftime. Don't panic when it is. Win the second half, Missouri wins the game. Before last week, the Tigers had been very good in the fourth quarter. They were terrible in it last week.
  • PREDICTION TIME: As stated above, I expect this to be a close game at halftime. Something like 17-10. But Missouri is the better team on both sides of the football. The Tigers absolutely have to win this game or the dream of playing in Atlanta is probably dead. I think they get it done over the final two quarters. Missouri 37, Tennessee 17
