The Missouri Tigers will try to earn their sixth win of the season and bowl eligibility when they take on the Texas Tech Red Raiders.

With just two games remaining in the 2011 season, Missouri needs just one more win to become bowl eligible. The Tigers will try to complete the feat Saturday when they host the Texas Tech Red Raiders who come into the game having lost three games in a row.

Missouri is coming off of a 17-5 upset win over Texas last week and will finish up its regular season schedule next week against Kansas. Missouri's James Franklin figures to provide a major challenge for a Red raiders team that has surrendered at least 41 points in each of its last three losses. 

It has been an up and down season for the Red Raiders who started 4-0 before losing five of their next six. Even more peculiar is that the only win during that stretch came against then No. 3 Oklahoma which may keep the Sooners out of the BCS Title game.
