Missouri may seem rather pedestrian so far this season, with a 4-4 SU record, but they have excelled in November with eight consecutive wins and covers in the month. The Tigers will look to remain perfect when they host the Mississippi State Bulldogs Thursday.
- The total has gone UNDER in 10 of Mizzou’s past 11 home games.
- Mississippi State is 4-1 ATS in their past five following a win.
- Dak Prescott has accounted for 68 percent of the Bulldogs’ yards.
Mizzou went through a bit of a roller coaster this past week as they reinstated starting quarterback Maty Mauk only to suspend him for the remainder of the season six days later. Freshman signal caller Drew Lock will likely retain the starting role after getting the call the past four weeks, but the quarterback has not registered a touchdown pass in three straight games.
Despite a quieter season in Starkville, Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott has been near flawless with 14 passing touchdowns and one interception while adding another seven trips to the endzone with his legs.
