  • The #24/#23 Missouri Tigers (1-0 overall) make their first road trip of the newly-minted 2015 season as Mizzou travels to Jonesboro, Ark., where they will take on the Arkansas State Red Wolves (0-1).  Kickoff is set for 6:04 p.m. (central time) from Centennial Bank Stadium (30,964). The game will air live on ESPN3 via the WatchESPN app. Drew Fellios and Forrest Conoly will be on the call.
  • Mizzou is coming off of a solid and workmanlike 34-3 victory over Southeast Missouri to kick off the 2015 season.  The Tigers scored the first 17 points of the game and were never seriously threatened after that point as they won the school’s 14th-straight season opener.  Junior QB Maty Mauk threw for 181 yards and 2 TDs, while Mizzou got a blocked punt return for a score and a Drew LockTD pass in the second half to pull away. Each quarterback tossed for more than 100 yards, marking the first time since 1999 that Mizzou had two QBs throw for more than 100 yards in a single game, according to Mizzou historian Tom Orf. The last duo to do so was Kirk Farmer (182 yards) and Jim Dougherty (129) against Colorado in 1999.
  • Arkansas State opened its season with a tough road test at #8 USC, and the Trojans pulled away for a 55-6 victory.  The ASU offense managed 402 yards of offense on the night (including 209 rushing yards), but suffered four turnovers as USC put up 509 yards of offense in the win.
  • Mizzou’s defense was outstanding last Saturday against SEMO, holding the Redhawks to just three points. Even more impressive, Mizzou allowed just 56 yards passing, which is the sixth-best single-game pass defense by a Mizzou team in the last 20 years. You would have to more than double SEMO’s pass production to catch the next-best SEC pass defense from week one (128 yards by Florida in a 61-13 win over New Mexico State).
  • As Mizzou prepares for its first road trip of the 2015 season, it is important to note that Mizzou is currently riding a school record 10-game road winning streak, dating back to Sept. 21, 2013, at Indiana. It is the third-longest streak in the nation, trailing only Ohio State and Florida State. In fact, the next-longest streak among SEC teams is Alabama at three.
  • When looking at the stats, it is easy to see why Mizzou has been so successful on the road over the last two seasons. Streak notables are below:
    • Mizzou has 39 sacks over the last 10 road games and at least 1.0 sack in nine straight
    • Mizzou has 13 interceptions and has recovered eight fumbles (21 total TOs)
    • The defense is allowing just 21.4 points per game during the streak
    • Opponents are converting third downs at just a 36.4 percent clip
    • Mizzou is averaging 38.4 points per game in the streak with just 10 turnovers
    • Mizzou is averaging 5.0 yards per rush during the streak, gaining 175 yards or better on the ground in seven of the 10 games.
    • Mizzou has scored 24 rushing TDs during the streak – opponents have just 26 total TDs during the streak.
  • Mizzou has won five conference division titles since 2007, tied for the most among any school from a power five conference with Alabama and Florida St. Mizzou has won 77 games since 2007, tied with USC for the fifth-most in the country (power five) in that span.
