It’s a good news, bad news situation for Missouri as the Tigers get ready to welcome Jeff Brohm’s Purdue Boilermakers to town.
The bad news: Mizzou will have to face an aggressive, confident offense that will, more than South Carolina, attempt to create the type of breakdowns and mistakes we saw the Tigers make against Missouri State. We’ll learn pretty definitively if Missouri’s defensive improvement against South Carolina was because of Mizzou’s improvement or South Carolina’s philosophy.
There’s a chance we don’t like the answer we get, obviously.
The good news, however: Mizzou does still get to face Purdue’s defense, too. The Boilermakers have been rather accommodating thus far.
Against Louisville and reigning Heisman winner Lamar Jackson, Purdue allowed 524 yards (6.6 per play) and 35 points.
