Missouri HC Barry Odom said that he expects sophomore RB Damarea Crockett (shoulder) to be able to play against Texas in the Texas Bowl.

Crockett injured his wing against Georgia in October and subsequently sat out the remainder of the regular season. While Odom believes the 5-foot-11, 212-pounder should be able to suit up come bowl time on Dec. 27, he indicated that the sophomore's carry-load remains up in the air. The emergence of Larry Rountree will likely lead to siphoned-off carries for Crockett even if he's close to full strength.
Dec 10 - 12:44 PM

Missouri has been given a two-year contract extension.

With the extension, Odom is now under contract through the year 2023. It's a remarkable turnaround when you consider how hot the seat was here, especially when Missouri started the year 1-5. Since then, the Tigers have won six straight, and will play Texas in the Texas Bowl on December 27.
Dec 9 - 4:05 PM

Missouri promoted secondary coach/co-DC Ryan Walters to defensive coordinator.

Starting the season, the Tigers were rolling with DeMontie Cross as defensive coordinator, but he was fired just two games into the campaign. Walters has been coaching up the secondary with Missouri since the winter of 2015, when he came over from Memphis. Mizzou finished the season ranked 89th in total yards surrendered on average, but the defense did play better by degrees as the year rolled along. We'll have our first chance to see Walters in full capacity as defensive coordinator when the Tigers take on Texas in the Texas Bowl on Dec. 27.

Dan Patrick relayed word from an NFL scout who really likes Missouri junior QB Drew Lock's NFL potential.

Early in the process, Patrick brought up Patrick Mahomes' name as a quarterback who will be selected higher than many viewed at that point. That ended up being true, and the same scout who mentioned Lock's name was the one who brought up Mahomes' name. As of now, Lock is still deciding on his NFL future.
Dec 6 - 10:31 AM

Missouri redshirt senior WR J'Mon Moore has accepted an invitation to play in the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Moore (6'3/205) was the leading receiver in the SEC in 2016, and while he didn't lead the conference in 2017, he did better his numbers with 62 catches for 1,017 yards and ten touchdowns. He was a huge part of Missouri's turnaround over the second-half of the season, and he'll be one of the more heavily scouted wideouts this January.

Missouri HC Barry Odom believes sophomore RB Damarea Crockett (shoulder) could return for the Dec. 27 Texas Bowl against Texas.

Crockett hasn't played since getting injured in mid-October against Georgia. He underwent shoulder surgery on Oct. 20. At the time, it was thought to be a devastating injury for Missouri's offense, but Ish Witter and Larry Rountree III have stepped up to form a strong 1-2 punch.
Dec 4 - 5:56 PM

Missouri junior DL Terry Beckner Jr. announced he will return for his senior season.

Beckner's first two seasons featured hiccups, but he really turned it on this year. The other big announcement Missouri fans are waiting on is quarterback Drew Lock.
Dec 2 - 10:30 AM

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Missouri is discussing a contract extension with HC Barry Odom.

What a difference a month-and-half makes. When the Tigers languished to a 1-5 start, there were loud murmurs that Odom may be dismissed at the end of the season. Following a six-game winning streak to close the regular season, Mizzou now wants to extend its pact with him. Odom, who has three years remaining on his original five-year deal, is 11-13 through two years with the Tigers.
Nov 28 - 4:35 PM

Missouri freshman TE Albert Okwuegbunam hauled in five receptions for 63 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Friday's 48-45 win at Arkansas.

Okwuegbunam looks like the next great Mizzou tight end in the mold of Chase Coffman, Michael Egnew, A.J. Ofodile, Martin Rucker, etc. The freshman has visited the end zone four times over the past two weekends, and nine times across the past six contests. Next up is his first appearance in a bowl game. Okwuegbunam has a very bright future, and he is just getting started.
Nov 24 - 7:39 PM

Missouri redshirt senior WR J'Mon Moore posted 10 receptions for 160 yards and a touchdown in the regular-finale finale at Arkansas on Friday.

Moore stepped up his game once Emanuel Hall (hamstring) left the game with an injury. The Missouri offense has been ridiculous down the stretch, and Moore has been a big part of the scoring. Moore has visited the end zone 10 times through 12 games, including six TDs over the past six games. Mizzou's next game will be in a bowl game, and they'll be a dangerous offense to handle.
Nov 24 - 7:35 PM

Missouri junior QB Drew Lock completed 25-of-42 passes for 448 yards, five touchdowns and two interceptions in Friday's 48-45 win at Arkansas.

The Kansas City-area product has produced at least three touchdown passes in eight straight outings, as the Mizzou offense has been an absolute juggernaut lately. The Tigers have posted 45 or more points in six straight outings, averaging 51.3 points per game. It's hard to believe the Tigers started out 1-5, and they might be a bit overlooked with a 7-5 bowl record. But make no mistake, Lock and the Tigers will be a difficult team to handle in their bowl game.
Nov 24 - 7:31 PM

Missouri junior WR Emanuel Hall is doubtful to return after injuring his hamstring in the first half of Friday's game against Arkansas.

Hall left for the locker room after injuring his hamstring with just under five minutes remaining in the first half. And what a first half it had been for the 6-foot-3, 200-pound junior, who had turned two catches into 111 yards and a pair of scores in what's developed into a fantastically entertaining shootout. Missouri currently leads Arkansas 31-28 at the half.
Nov 24 - 4:31 PM

Missouri redshirt senior TE Jason Reese (back) has been ruled out for Friday's game against Arkansas.

Reese (6'5/250) strained his back in practice this week. While the redshirt senior has logged just five catches on the year, he's been phenomenally productive on his limited touches. Reese is averaging 26.8 yards per reception. Three of those five grabs have gone for touchdowns. Kendall Blanton figures to see the field a bit more on Friday with Reese ruled out.
Nov 24 - 2:35 PM

Missouri senior RB Ish Witter ran for 102 yards on 16 carries in a 45-17 victory over Vanderbilt on Saturday.

Witter once again split carries with Larry Rountree, but this time he was the much more effective runner for the Tigers. The 5-foot-10, 195-pound tailback didn't have many big runs -- a long of 23 -- but he kept Missouri "on schedule" and set up several of the Tigers scores. Witter will finish his regular season next week against Arkansas.
Nov 19 - 10:51 AM

Missouri junior QB Drew Lock completed 10-of-25 passes for 235 yards with three touchdowns in a 45-17 victory over Vanderbilt on Saturday.

Over his last two games, Lock has completed under 50 percent of his passes, which is bad. He's also thrown for seven touchdowns in that time, which is very good. He found his star freshman TE Albert Okwuegbunam for two of his scores, and threw a thirty-yard score to Richaud Lloyd. You'd like to see the junior quarterback more accurate with his throws, but it's tough to argue with his ability to make big plays in the passing game.
