Synopsis of the Game | By the time this post goes up, I'm not sure if I will have had the time to write the MU offense vs. TTU defense (if I don't, I'm sorry), but Missouri is an excellent offense and were it not for Robert Griffin, III, Blaine Gabbert might be the best quarterback (not including Nebraska's Martinez) in the Big 12 right now. I don't think the Texas Tech defense has enough to keep pace with Missouri on offense. The Missouri rushing game isn't great, but the Tigers are 23rd in the nation in passing and 33rd in the nation in scoring offense. I'm picking Darrin Moore as my offensive MVP because I'm not sure if there are many options out there (there are, but at some point, I'm going to take a picture of me grasping for straws and link to it where it's appropriate) and Brian Duncan for my defensive MVP because this defense isn't half as good when he's not getting to the quarterback. He's got to get there.

The line opened at 6.5 and has moved down to 4.5. Must have been quite a bit of money on Texas Tech to force a 2 point swing.

Offensive MVP | WR Darrin Moore

Defensive MVP | OLB Brian Ducan

Final Score | Missouri Tigers 42, Texas Tech Red Raiders 35
