The Auburn Tigers know more about their Week 4 opponent after Missouri head coach Eli Drinkwitz named Brady Cook as the starting quarterback.
Cook was a substitute for Connor Bazelak last season and played five games last year. He also started in the Armed Forces vs. Army Bowl. Mizzou lost but Cook threw for 238 yards in the air and another 53 on the ground to go along with two touchdowns (1 pass, 1 rush).
Cook and the rest of the Missouri Tigers will come to Jordan Hare Stadium on September 24. This game is considered a must win for Bryan Harsin and the Auburn Tigers.
Game 4 will be the SEC opener for both teams and will be Missouri’s second road trip of the season. They visit Kansas State two weeks earlier.
Auburn will come out of a huge game with the Penn State Nittany Lions. Missouri will enter the game after an easier foe, Abilene Christian.
The Week 4 game between Auburn and Missouri will be only the fourth game in series history. Auburn is 2-1 against Mizzou, including winning the last two meetings. Auburn won 51-14 in 2017 and 59-42 in the 2013 SEC Championship Game. Missouri won the teams’ first game in 1973 by a score of 34-17.
