Put together all of those players, and you've got a pretty talented bunch.
“Missouri's skill guys do match up well with anybody else's skill guys in the nation,” Cowboy linebacker Shaun Lewis said. “I think they do a good job of getting their skill guys in a position to make plays.”
That was obvious in that game in Norman. Missouri found ways to get their playmakers out in space. Give Franklin or Josey room to run, and they can pick up yards in bunches. Leave too much cushion for Moe or Egnew, and they can make you pay.
Those will be issues for an OSU defense that has been known to surrender yardage in bunches.
Granted, these guys from Missouri aren't perfect. Otherwise, the Tigers wouldn't enter this game with a 3-3 record.
That mark might make this game easy to overlook, especially after the Cowboys got over their two biggest road hurdles with impressive victories at Texas A&M and Texas. But the truth is, neither the Aggies nor the Longhorns have skills guys who posed as big a challenge as the Tigers will.
Keep your guard up, Cowboys. Just because two tough road tests have been passed doesn't mean the potential speed bumps are all in the rearview mirror.
“We want to take it with the same approach we took Texas and Texas A&M,” Gilbert said. “We've got to.
“We can't ... not play to our potential.”
Take it from someone who has seen first-hand how good the Tigers' talent is.
