Prediction

Missouri simply does not have the depth or firepower to hang with a machine like Alabama. The Tigers stay within striking distance in the first half before Nick Saban’s squad pulls away in the second and then goes into cruise control. Drew Lock throws for a pair of touchdowns and Missouri has a running back go for a season-high in rushing yards (which would be 104 or better) against the Tide defense.

Alabama 52, Missouri 17
