#12 Missouri Tigers vs Iowa Hawkeyes

Tuesday December 28, 2010 10:00 PM EST

Line: Missouri -3

Missouri finished their season with a 3 game winning streak, and scored 35 or more in 2 of those games. They were 2-1 vs ranked opponents on the year, and upset the #1 ranked Oklahoma Sooners. Iowa scuffled at the end of the season losing 3 straight. They were 2-3 vs ranked opponents.

Stats to consider:

Missouri Tigers:

  • The Tigers are 10-2.
  • Points for per game: 30.3 (44th)
  • Points against per game: 15.2 (6th)
  • Passing yards a game: 238.2 (43rd)
  • Rushing yards a game: 162.9 (48th)

Iowa Hawkeyes:

  • Iowa is 7-5.
  • Points for per game: 29.1 (49th)
  • Points against per game: 16.4 (7th)
  • Passing yards a game: 237.4 (45th)
  • Rushing yards a game: 142 (76th)

What to watch for:

  • Missouri Junior QB Blaine Gabbert has thrown for 2,752 yards 15 TDs and 7 Ints. His main target has been Sophomore WR T.J. Moe who has 893 yards and 6 TDs.
  • Iowa Senior QB Ricky Stanzi has thrown for 2,804 yards 25 TDs and 4 Ints. His main target has been Junior Marvin McNutt who leads the team with 798 yards and 8 TDs. McNutt may enter the draft pending on how this game goes.
  • Iowa Sophomore RB Adam Robinson leads the squad with 941 yards and 10 TDs. He also has 290 receiving yards and a TD.

This football pick is tough based on how these two teams finished the season. Missouri ended their season with a 3 game winning streak while the Tigers ended their season with a 3 game losing streak. Both teams have had a month to get ready for this one, so I’m gonna throw the end of the season records out the window. Iowa is a tough team. They were 2-3 vs ranked opponents, but their 3 loses came by a TD or less. Look for Iowa to match Missouri in every part of the game.
