Mis­souri over VAN­DER­BILT by 11

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - Miami Florida Over -

Talk about a team that woke up and an­swered the bell! The Tigers were 1-5 SU out of the gate be­fore go­ing 4-0 SUATS, as well as 6-0 ATS the last six games. They will need a win today or next week at Arkansas in order to cash a bowl ticket, and with their re­cent form, should be able to pick that up today. They are com­ing off a de­struc­tion of Ten­nessee (who fired Butch Jones af­ter the game), get­ting 216 yards on the ground from Ish Wit­ter and 155 more from Larry Roun­tree, as the Tigers out­gained the Vols, 659-285. For Vandy, the loss to Ken­tucky last week sig­naled an end of their bowl dreams this sea­son – un­less the Com­mies fin­ish with 5 wins and qual­ify via APR scores un­der re­cently adapted bowl bub­ble burst rule. Un­like Miz­zou, the Com­modores started strong with three straight wins be­fore go­ing 1-6 in its last seven games. Thus, in a matchup of two teams go­ing in op­po­site di­rec­tions, we’re grab­bing this Tiger by its tail and rid­ing along.
