2. Missouri’s offense is bad

We could sit here and praise Florida’s defense, but the bigger story had to be the anemic Missouri offense which had yet another game of lifelessness.

The Tigers have scored just 27 points over the last four games and they ran into the buzzsaw that was the Gator defense. They finished with less than 10 points for the third straight game and that’s not what anyone had expected when Kelly Bryant decided to transfer to Missouri — and it looked like he was going to change things in the first half of the season.

We can still give props to the Gators for keeping a second straight SEC team out of the end zone after shutting Vanderbilt out last year. The Gators had 10 tackles for loss and looked absolutely dominant defensively, but there’s no doubt that Saturday was the perfect storm.

An offense that can’t do much of anything was facing a defense that was picking up steam and it ended the way everyone expected.

Missouri has plenty of questions to answer and if you’re Dan Mullen, you feel good about your defense.
