The Missouri Tigers and the Arizona State Sun Devils are tonight's showcase game and a primer college football matchup this week. The game starts at 10:30 ET and can be seen on ESPN and ESPN3.com.

The Tigers won in less than impressive fashion against Miami (OH) at home last Saturday 17-6. Sophomore quarterback James Franklin had his ups and downs in his first game as the starter, while star defensive end Brad Madison led the defense with two sacks.

The Sun Devils breezed by UC-Davis at home 48-14 that same day. Junior quarterback Brock Osweiler was very efficient, passing for 296 yards and two touchdowns. Stalwart junior middle linebacker Vontaze Burfict was sensational as usual, recording three sacks on the day. 

How will Missouri handle Vontaze Burfict? How will Arizona State's defense attack the Missouri's front seven?

We'll find out soon enough. Tune in to Bleacher Report for all the latest updates of the game complete with scores, analysis and general breakdown of this prime non-conference showdown.
