Quick, close your eyes and guess which team is losing its interim head coach after this game. Actually, you'll need to read the following in order to make an informed decision. OK, so, one team in the 2011 Independence Bowl ran for seven yards per carry throughout its 44 attempts, while the other couldn't break two.
The Missouri Tigers will enter the SEC with a 41-24 win over an ACC team, which is quite the SEC thing to do. The North Carolina Tar Heels have the talent to stand with just about anybody in the country, but Mizzou played with far more interest in the game's outcome.
Quarterback James Franklin finished with 142 yards passing and 132 through the air, along with a pair of touchdowns. Kendial Lawrence tacked on 99 rushing yards, various Tigers caught a pass or two, and Mizzou's defense limited everybody but Bryn Renner to 36 yards on the day.
Larry Fedora inherits a talented team that's clearly in need of direction, or at least not playing in Shreveport anymore.
