The Missouri Tiger football team had some breathing room last week. Since their game against Iowa St.—originally scheduled for November 1—was moved to November 29, Mizzou got an extra week to prepare for Colorado. Saturday’s game in Boulder is a crucial one for a couple of reasons. A victory will ensure MU’s first winning season since 1998 and will also snap a four-game skid against the Buffalos. The Tigers are also trying to win the Big 12 North title. If they can win their final four games—which also include home games against Texas A&M and Iowa St. and a road trip to Kansas St—they’ll take the Big 12 North Crown and square off against the winner of the South Division in Kansas City on December, 6. The Tigers are currently a half-game behind Nebraska and Kansas State, who are both 3-2 in the Big 12. Missouri hasn’t won a conference championship since they won the Big 8 title in 1969. Mizzou enters Saturday’s game with a record of 6-2 overall and 2-2 league play. Colorado is 3-6 and 1-4.
