Tigers Face Racers in Opener
Murray State is an NCAA Division One AA team, from the Ohio Valley Conference. Mizzou is 5-0 all-time against One AA schools, and 1-0 against Ohio Valley Conference schools with a 37-0 win three years ago over Eastern Illinois.
Missouri defensive tackle Lorenzo Williams said, "You just got to be prepared for everything in the first game. You know, we don't really know what their tendencies are yet, or what they're doing or what they haven't been doing, so you just got to be prepared for everything."
"They're a little bit undersized, but, you know, it doesn't matter. Whenever you go out there, you still got to line up and play football," added Missouri tight end Martin Rucker.
