IT IS THE FOURTH STRAIGHT YEAR THE TIGERS ARE ELIGIBLE TO PLAY IN A BOWL GAME. MIZZOU IS 0-2 IN BOWL GAMES UNDER HEAD COACH ELI DRINKWITZ. THEIR MUSIC CITY BOWL GAME AGAINST IOWA IN 2020 WAS CANCELED DUE TO POSITIVE TESTING FOR COVID-19 WHICH AFFECTED ROSTER

EXPANDED TO 12 TEAMS.  MIZZOU IS 1-11-1 AGAINST OHIO STATE ALL-TIME. ALL BUT ONE OF THE PREVIOUS 13 MEETINGS WERE PLAYED IN COLUMBUS, OHIO.
THE TIGERS ONLY WIN IN THE SERIES CAME BACK IN 1976. THE TEAMS HAVE NOT FACED EACH OTHER SINCE 1998.

NFL SUNDAY-

GREEN BAY 27 KANSAS CITY 19

JORDAN LOVE AND THE PACKERS STAYED HOT WITH A WIN OVER THE DEFENDING CHAMPS AT LAMBEAU FIELD……. LOVE THREW TWO FIRST-HALF TOUCHDOWNS TO GIVE GREEN BAY A 14-6 LEAD AT THE BREAK. THEN, AFTER
KANSAS CITY CAME WITHIN TWO, LOVE FOUND CHRISTIAN WATSON IN THE BACK OF THE ENDZONE TO PUT GREEN BAY UP BY
MULTIPLE POSSESSIONS.
THE CHIEFS RESPONDED WITH A TOUCHDOWN ON THEIR NEXT DRIVE, BUT KEISEAN NIXON PICKED OFF PATRICK MAHOMES WITH ABOUT
FIVE MINUTES LEFT IN REGULATION. GREEN BAY KICKED A FIELD GOAL TO GO UP EIGHT, AND KANSAS CITY’S HAIL-MARY ATTEMPT AT THE
END WAS BATTED AWAY. CHIEFS COACH ANDY REID CREDITED GREEN BAY WITH A WELL-EXECUTED GAMEPLAN….

 

LOVE PASSED FOR 267 YARDS AND THREE TOUCHDOWNS, TWO OF WHICH WENT TO WATSON. GREEN BAY HAS WON THREE GAMES IN
A ROW TO GET BACK TO .500 AT 6-AND-6, AND THEY HOLD THE FINAL WILD CARD SPOT IN THE NFC. PATRICK  MAHOMES WAS HELD TO 210
PASSING YARDS, A TOUCHDOWN, AND AN INTERCEPTION…

 

ISIAH PACHECO RAN FOR 110 YARDS AND A SCORE BEFORE BEING EJECTED IN THE 4TH QUARTER…. KC STILL HAS A
