Missouri senior wide receiver, Will Franklin said, "I don't know if it's going to be more like nebraska more, but there's going to be more people...It's just exciting around here during that time...It's my last one...It's going to be a big one."

Missouri volleyball coach, Wayne Kreklow said, "I think our players have competed at a high enough level that while they respect them a great deal, I don't think they're intimidated. I think we've played enough good teams that you kinda know 'we're going up against the best here.' We're gonna do our best and give it our best shot."
