Missouri got off on the wrong foot last week with a 37-31 loss at Wyoming that was punctuated by three turnovers.

Playing on the road at altitude, the Tigers got off to a good a good start with a 14-0 lead, but things quickly crumbled in the second quarter when the Cowboys reeled off 27 points. Coach Barry Odom identified that adversity, and figured his team would respond differently a week ago.

“I thought I had a pretty good feel on how we’d respond in some of those situations,” Odom said. “I was wrong.”

In his debut with the Tigers, high-profile Clemson transfer QB Kelly Bryant was 31-for-48 passing for 423 yards and two touchdowns. But he threw an interception in the end zone, and lost a fumble. The Tigers also had a fumble near the Wyoming goal line that was returned nearly the distance before a Bryant horse collar tackle.

Missouri plays its home opener this week against West Virginia.
