Louisiana Tech @ Missouri
Last Season Records: Missouri 6-7; Louisiana Tech 3-9
What to Know
The Missouri Tigers and the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs will face off at 8 p.m. ET Sept. 1 at Memorial Stadium at Faurot Field to kick off their 2022 seasons. Last year was nothing to brag about for Mizzou (6-7), so the team is looking forward to a new start. Likewise, coming off of an uninspired 3-9 last-season record, Louisiana Tech has set their aspirations higher this year.
A pair of last-season defensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Tigers were 15th worst when it came to rushing touchdowns allowed last season, with the squad giving up 32 overall (bottom 94%). Louisiana Tech experienced some struggles of their own as they ranked 26th worst in the nation with respect to touchdowns allowed last year, where the team gave up 50 (bottom 90%). It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
Mizzou is the favorite in this one, with an expected 19-point margin of victory. A victory is hardly a sure thing, especially this early in the season, so expect a good game.
