Mangle Mizzou! (Auburn vs. Missouri, Open Thread.)

Mizzou Thread

The Tigers open SEC play at Faurot Field.
(Auburn at Missouri, Open Thread.)

     War Eagle, everybody! Tonight, the Auburn Tigers will take on the Missouri Tigers, in Columbia, Missouri. This marks Auburn Football’s first ever visit to Show Me State. Auburn and Missouri have only played twice. Missouri won the 1973 Sun Bowl in El Paso, Texas, over Auburn by the score of 34-17. Auburn returned the favor in Atlanta, winning the 2013 SEC Title game over Missouri, 59-42. Tonight’s game will be televised on ESPN-U, and kickoff is set for 6:30 PM, Central Time.

     Auburn is a double digit favorite in this game, but an SEC road game is usually tough. Today, my biggest worry is the matchup between Auburn’s offensive tackles against some dangerous Missouri defensive ends. It’s pretty simple. If Auburn can protect the quarterback and running backs, Auburn should win easily. If not, another war is on hand.

     For those attending this game, weather should be just about perfect. Temps will be in the mid-80sF at kickoff, falling through the 70s after sunset. Skies should be clear, with a sliver of crescent moon in the sky at sunset. There is no chance     

     As always, feel free to join in and enjoy this thread. I’ll be on my Thinkpad a little later, with my usual play by play. War Eagle, and let’s show those Tigers!
