The Mizzou Tigers had their final scrimmage of the pre-season yesterday and the offense struggled, while the defense shined. Pinkel wasn’t overly concerned with the offense but was miffed at the number of penalties committed on both sides of the ball. On August 31st, Mizzou squares off with Illinois at the Dome in St. Louis. The two teams haven’t met since 1994 when the Illini shut out the Tigers 42-0. The Tigers are obviously hoping for a better performance than that for obvious win/loss reasons and because it will be televised on ABC TV.
