For the first time all week it was a relatively quiet day around Columbia, Mo. Just 24 hours stand between the Tigers and a date with BYU at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, with Missouri looking to snap a four-game losing streak.
Here are four things to know:
- It’s been far from a typical week for Mizzou, but the Tigers need wins in two of their final three games to be bowl-eligible. Now coach Gary Pinkel has the task of getting his team focused on Saturday’s game and not the turmoil around campus.
- While it remains to be seen if this week will have an impact on a struggling Mizzou team on Saturday, St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s Ben Fredrickson questioned what the long-term effect for the Tigers could be.
- Coaching the Kansas City Chiefs isn’t Andy Reid’s only tie to Saturday’s Mizzou-BYU game in his stadium. The long-time NFL head coach may be torn when it comes to who to root for in Saturday’s game.
- Wes Clark has experienced ups and downs in his time at Mizzou, but the junior guard is determined to help turnaround a program that has fallen on hard times.
