Missouri football head coach Eli Drinkwitz said it himself: Mizzou "did not represent this university the right way" in a 62-24 loss to unranked Tennessee on Oct. 2.

Perhaps Saturday's homecoming game against North Texas will provide the get-right opportunity Mizzou seeks.

The Tigers host the Mean Green for a 3 p.m. CT kickoff on Oct. 9, and fans can watch the non-conference battle on the SEC Network.

Missouri (2-3, 0-2 in the SEC) enters Saturday's contest off the heels of one of the worst defensive performances in the program's recent memory. The Vols scored 45 first-half points and ran for 458 yards over the entire game, averaging 7.8 yards per carry. In total, Missouri allowed 683 total yards and gave up 35 first downs.

For North Texas (1-3, 0-2 in the Conference USA), the Mean Green have lost three straight games dating back to Sept. 11. Recently, North Texas fell to Louisiana Tech 24-17 on Sept. 25. The Mean Green offense is lead by running back DeAndre Torrey, who has ran for 516 yards and four touchdowns in 2021. He's caught four passes for 26 yards as well.

Here is everything Mizzou fans need to know to watch and stream Saturday's game against North Texas.
