Luther Burden’s leg seems fine to us.

The gifted freshman Mizzou receiver has the Tigers on the board early, fighting his way for a 35-yard touchdown off a bubble screen. That’s his second touchdown reception on the year and gives Mizzou a 7-0 lead over the hapless Commodores.

Burden was one of the top prospects in the 2022 Class, making all Tiger fans happy by announcing his commitment. He’s a sight for sore eyes for Missouri in general.

The Tigers are just 2-4 on the season and could be facing a tie game against the Commodores following a Brady Cook interception with 8 minutes remaining in the first quarter.

There’s a lot of football to be played. Let’s see if the Tigers defense holds.
