The Missouri Tigers no longer rely solely on their offense to win games in 2010. After MU defeated the Sooners this past Saturday, Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones was asked about the team he just faced.
"They did a good job," Jones said. "Missouri's a great defense."
The Tigers are currently ranked fifth in the country in points allowed at only 13.1 points per game.
Nebraska does have a large lead on the series, but Mizzou has won four of the last seven games against the Cornhuskers.
Head Coach Gary Pinkel stands 4-5 against Nebraska in his nine years at Missouri.
The only other Mizzou coach to have more wins against Nebraska was College Football Hall of Famer Dan Devine (1958-1970).
Both teams will be highly motivated to win their final Big 12 conference matchup, as Nebraska bolts for the Big 10 in 2011.
Missouri: 41 Nebraska: 28
