vs. Missouri guard Ryan Madison, center Tim Barnes,
and guard Kurtis Gregory
He has only thrown one interception but he is due some more. The Missouri line is big, averaging 6-foot-4 and 305 pounds. Barnes is a pup as a sophomore, Gregory is a junior All-Big 12 candidate, and Madison is a senior. Fight, scratch and claw has to be the Cowboys motto. Anything within the rules to get close to Chase.
Advantage: Missouri - The Tigers are even with the Cowboys offensive line is allowing just two sacks in the first five games. They are good and Daniel has all the tools to magnify their effort. It will be tough but a few quarterback hurries would be nice.
vs. Missouri cornerbacks Castine Brdiges and Carl Gettis
They get safety help a lot and William Moore is an All-Big 12 and maybe an All-American there, but Moore can't always be there with the Oklahoma State run game and the other wide receiver as well as Brandon Pettigrew.
Bryant has been dominating corners as good or better. Now Missouri can devote the manpower to stop Bryant, but if they do others will really enjoy an advantage because of it.
Advantage: OSU - Bryant is so good he is either going to have a good game or set somebody else up to.
vs. Missouri wide receiver Jeremy Maclin
Advantage: Even - This is the strongest position on defense for the Cowboys, and Lacey and Cox have both proven that they will hit and drive through receivers. Communication is a must as Maclin can wind up all over the Mizzou offense and all over the field.
