Tyler Badie reveals whether or not he'll play in Mizzou's bowl game
Missouri saw its regular season come to an end in a 34-17 loss to Arkansas in Fayetteville. While the Tigers fall to 6-6 on the regular season, they are bowl eligible and will learn their postseason destination on Dec. 5.
For NFL Draft-ready prospects like Tyler Badie, the decision always centers around whether or not they’ll participate in a bowl game. Badie had a tremendous performance in a losing effort against the Razorbacks as he set the program’s single-season rushing yardage record. His final tally was 41 carries for 219 yards and a touchdown — his 41 touches marking a career-high and his 219 yards his 2nd-highest total all-time.
Following the loss to the Razorbacks, Badie was asked if he’ll play in the Tigers’ upcoming bowl game.
“I definitely want to play,” he responded.
That’s certainly good news for Tigers fans, who will get one last chance to see their star running back and the SEC’s leading rusher in a Mizzou uniform before he pursues a career in the NFL.
