Mizzou offense looks to keep growing ahead of SEC schedule


In the words of Brady Cook, the Mizzou offense did a lot of things well in the win against Abilene Christian, but Cook also said there are a lot of things the Tigers can improve on.

As Cook praised the Auburn defense, he said the offense needs to step it up a notch this Saturday.

"We just got to go out there and do our thing, play our game, I'm not concerned about it but yeah it will be a challenge," Cook said.

For transfer running back Cody Schrader, the trip to Auburn will be his first SEC matchup.

"Nothing really changes for me. I kind of got that out of my system the first game and I know I have to be a pro about these situations and not let outside noise or big crowds or anything like that affect the way I play," Schrader said.

Not only does Mizzou have some transfers that haven't played in SEC environments, but the freshman are on that list too.

"It's been preached that it's going to very loud you know that SEC environment and I think K State kind of set the bar for how loud the stadium could be, but SEC is going to be louder so we have a main focus on silent communication," said wide receiver Mekhi Miller.

While Eli Drinkwitz alluded to some possible changes on the offensive line, veteran lineman Javon Foster says that group spent the week working to make sure they can get the job done on Saturday.

"Doing a lot of hands inside drills. No more wrapping stuffing like that just keying in on hands inside that goes with technique and we've been really focusing on that this week," Foster said
