The Oklahoma Sooners will look to follow up their big win over Florida State with a victory over Missouri in their Big 12 opener Saturday night in Norman.
Thanks to Twitter, players from both sides have already started talking trash. Missouri WR Jarrell Jackson hinted earlier in the week that there was nothing to fear in the Sooners. Sooners LB Travis Lewis responded on Twitter saying, "Someone made himself bait with those comments...Should have just shut his mouth."
The Sooners and Tigers have played in some really big games in recent years.
In 2007 Missouri faced Oklahoma in the Big 12 Championship. The Tigers came in ranked No. 1 and were looking to play their way into the BCS Championship game. The Sooners won that meeting 38-17.
The following year, the two met again with the conference title on the line. Again the Sooners won convincingly 62-21.
Of course, the Tigers got some revenge last season when they knocked Oklahoma out of the No. 1 spot in the BCS rankings by upsetting the Sooners 36-27 in Columbia.
Again the two will meet with the Sooners ranked No. 1. This time however, the Tigers have no shot at upsetting the Sooners. These Tigers are still pretty good, but here are five reasons why Jackson and his Missouri teammates should fear the Sooners and have no chance at picking up a win in Norman.
