Missouri is bowl eligible, and Barry Odom is not afraid to show that he’s excited about it.
Those are two statements that seemed unlikely to be uttered at this point of the season after the Tigers began the season with a 1-5 record. But to his credit, Odom has rallied the troops and won five consecutive games.
The latest of which was an impressive 45-17 win at Vanderbilt to earn the Tigers the coveted sixth victory of the season to ensure a return to bowl season for Missouri.
