On paper these two teams are similar in a lot of ways.  However, Missouri does have the edge in most of those areas as well.  The thing that keeps Kansas in this one is a pass defense in Missouri's that is actually worse than their own.  If Kansas can get the offense going, they can make it a shootout again.  If the offense stalls and Missouri gets out in front, it may be tough to recover.

Quick Note: Sorry Labba, but I'm going to miss the RCT Football League Power Rankings this week.  A little bit busy with the holidays but I promise it's back next Friday in full effect.
