Gary Pinkel will not be on the sidelines for the Missouri Tigers today in their last home game while members of the Big 12. However, the Tigers have some decent momentum coming in from last weekend’s win over the Texas Longhorns 17-5 and the team should have enough offensive firepower even without star running back Henry Josey (the Big 12’s leading rusher coming into this week) to withstand the Texas Tech Red Raiders.
The Red Raiders have endured a three game losing streak and none of them have even been close. The Missouri offensive attack should utilize the versatile nature of Franklin today since Josey is out, but Kendial Lawrence should take advantage of the start at running back and provide yards on the ground like he did last week subbing for Josey.
Pinkel will be allowed back next Thursday in time to coach the Tigers last conference game in the Big 12 against Kansas. Here’s all the key info you need to know for today’s game to catch it.
