Defensive line has held its own for MU
Thursday, November 1, 2012
COLUMBIA, Mo. — It’s no secret the Southeastern Conference is a league built on defense.
Under head coach Gary Pinkel, Missouri has traditionally been a team known for its offense.
So when the Tigers made the jump to the SEC, there was some question as to how they would fit in. While the offense has had its issues, Missouri’s defense is finding a home in its new digs.
“We get up there and match pretty good against them,” Pinkel said about his team’s defense. “We’re playing pretty good defense overall.”
The Tigers rank 25th nationally in total defense, allowing 334 yards per game. That’s good for sixth in the SEC.
