Wyoming is a team that many were high on preseason but they did not look very good against Washington State last week. The question we are wondering is whether they are Mountain West good or just plain good.
Missouri finished last season with one of the best offenses going but it is hard to know if they are really onto something or whether their opponents were just unprepared. The Wyoming defense will give up some indication of how much of a threat they will be in the SEC this season..
All the preseason talk around the Cowboys was about the loss of QB Josh Allen. Sure he is a tremendous talent but for the Cowboys he was not always the most productive football player.
In his place is Tyler Vander Waal but really this team wants to be about playing good defense and pounding the ball on the ground. Running back Nico Evans can be effective on the ground, 190 yards in the opener, but only when they can stay in the game in terms of time and score.
The Wyoming defense might be tops in the Mountain West this season. They lost against Washington State last week but were actually pretty good holding the pass happy Cougars to less than 6 yards per pass play. Penalties were the real killers as they need to play a cleaner game. .
Georgia is one of the best teams in the country so Missouri is kind of an afterthought in the SEC…but they might be the second best team in the division and they eased into the season with a 51-14 win over Tennessee-Martin. .
Drew Lock exploded last year throwing for 44 TDs during an eye catching season. They are expecting big things this season and he is on the radar of the NFL for sure. If the Cowboys secondary is truly good they will give him a good test.
The defense looks OK against UTM but it is the weaker of the two units. Wyoming will look to slow the game with their ground attack and these guys need to get off the field to give the ball back to the offense. They don’t appear to have that one edge rushing missile like they h ave had in the past.

While I am high on Wyoming in Mountain West play I am not liking them to outperform in this matchup. .

This number looks good but if Mizzou is getting touchdowns instead of field gals half the time they cover. They don’t have to dominate to do it. .
This one might not look great early as the Tigers might be feeling the fact that this is their first real competition but once they get over that it will be smooth sailing
