This week, the Missouri Southern Lions football team hits the road to take on Missouri Western. The Lions will be looking to snap a two-game losing streak and bounce back from a tough 24-21 loss to Emporia State.
MSSU is also looking to get back above .500 with a 4-4 record this week.
The Griffons are coming off a 28-16 loss to Pitt State and are 3-5 as they prepare to host the Lions. MSSU is hoping for success with its pass defense, but the Lions need to step up their run defense as Western ranks second in the MIAA in rushing.
The Lions have found themselves in several close games this season. This week and the rest of the year. The team knows they have the experience to make a big play to win a game if it comes down to that on Saturday.
Atiba Bradley said: “Our team has confidence, I have confidence in our players, I have confidence in our coaches. Unfortunately, just because you work hard or prepare hard doesn’t mean you’re guaranteed a win. You can do everything perfectly and still lose, so we did a lot of good things on Saturday and just missed a bit.”
Romel Readus said: “There’s no doubt in anyone’s mind that we can go out there and make a stop, we just have to do what we have to do, do our job and end it with each other. others.”
Dwayne Lawson said: “We always do, we prepare hard and we train hard every week, so I really feel like we have to make those two or three games that are going to change the whole game.”
