Baseball is officially over, meaning it’s time to focus on football. Just 48 hours until Missouri plays host to No. 24 Mississippi State, which is looking to remain in the hunt for the SEC West title. Mizzou needs two wins in its final four games to become bowl eligible and three of those games will be played in Missouri.
Here are three things to know:
- Sophomore defensive end Charles Harris is putting up numbers that have NFL coaches and front offices interested in his services. But, they’ll have to wait if they want the opportunity to draft Harris, who announced that he will be returning to Columbia, Mo. in 2016.
- The Tigers have two true home games remaining, but Mizzou will also play BYU on Nov. 14 at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City. On Monday, that game and the entire Week 11 SEC slate received its time designation and TV assignment.
- It was a bye week for Mizzou, but that didn’t keep the Tigers from climbing up a spot in the SEC Country Power Poll. Find out where all 14 SEC teams rank here.
