LOSS

It seems like every time you look at the schedule, there is a BIG-12 game going on with National Title implications. This week is no different! Texas took care of business last week in the Red River Rivalry. Now they get the privledge of facing Mizzou and Texas Tech right afterward. Missouri got caught snoozing last week as Chase Daniels threw three INTs resulting in the Tigers' first loss of the year. The Longhorns came from behind last week, expending a lot of energy and emotion in the monster game vs. the Sooners. You have to wonder if they can bring the same type of play for a second week in a row vs. a Missouri team that has equal weapons at their disposal, and strong motivation after their loss. Missouri players know that a win here vs. the #1 team puts them back on the National Title map. A second-straight loss and the hopes are shot. There is talent all over the field here, and the difference is likely to be mindset. Not that Texas doesn't want to win as much as Missouri. But, after what they had to do last week in a physically and emotionally draining game vs. their most hated rival, there is no place to go but down. I expect that to be the difference maker here. Missouri has won six of the last nine Big 12 road games against the spread and I like them here.
