This is a really good matchup for Missouri, which is much better than its 4-4 record indicates. The Tigers have had one of the toughest schedules in FBS. And of their four losses, they could have (and arguably should have) won two against South Carolina and Kentucky. Those two SEC losses came by a combined three points.
Speaking of Kentucky, I think Missouri can follow the script the Wildcats used when they pulled out a win in Gainesville: take away the run and turn quarterback Feleipe Franks into a passer. Missouri can certainly do the former, as it has an absolutely dominant run defense that S&P+ ranks third overall nationally.
If you take away the Gators’ running game, they become very inefficient on offense. Florida ranks 85th in the country with a subpar 58.4% completion percentage. Florida does rank second nationally in Adjusted Sack Rate on Passing Downs, which means Franks will have all day to throw against a Missouri team that ranks 129th in the same category.
However, I don’t think Franks is a consistent enough passer to shred a Missouri secondary that has played better since naming two new starters in Christian Holmes and safety Tyree Gillespie.
On the other side of the ball, Florida can get after the quarterback as well as any team in the country (11th in Adjusted Sack Rate), but Missouri actually protects Drew Lock well, ranking 18th in that same category.
I also think Florida may come out very flat just one week after getting eliminated from SEC East contention, while Missouri has continued to bounce back after tough losses and should still have motivation to get bowl eligible.
