Eli Drinkwitz and the Missouri Tigers picked up a much-needed win over North Texas on Saturday for Mizzou’s homecoming.

The final score was 48-35, which doesn’t look great, but the Tigers did hold a 31-7 lead at halftime, so there was some dominance from the much-maligned defense.

Drinkwitz was pleased to get the win, and was pleasant in his postgame press conference. Here’s some of what he had to say after the Homecoming victory:

On star RB Tyler Badie:

On defensive improvements after an embarrassing loss to Tennessee last week.

The Tigers host Texas A&M next weekend. Can they pull off a big-time upset? We’ll see if things continue to trend up for Mizzou.
