Mizzou Football: Tigers Are Heavy Favorites Against Colorado

The Mizzou Tigers are a heavy favorite entering Saturday's game against Colorado in Columbia, MO.

At this point the oddsmakers say 11.5 points (depending on where you look) will be the margin of Mizzou's victory.

On offense, Mizzou should be able to move the ball pretty well and score points. On defense, Mizzou is creating a lot of turnovers (a lot more than last year).

Colorado is average on defense and on offense will give it to Rodney Stewart at running back. Tyler Hansen already has five picks at quarterback.

Colorado players have been saying they're ready to snap their four-game losing streak to Mizzou and Buffs fans think this is the year they do it. Mizzou players have said they're ready for Colorado and for the start of Big 12 play because all these games will be tough. Gary Pinkel has said they're a solid team (though he says that about everyone, as all coaches do).

The game gets going at 6:00 p.m. (central) in Columbia, MO at Faurot Stadium.
