Trystan Colon-Castillo waits for the snap

Missouri offensive lineman Trystan Colon-Castillo prepares to snap the ball during the second quarter against Vanderbilt on Saturday on Faurot Field.

Missouri clinched bowl eligibility with a comeback win over Vanderbilt last week. However, there is still work to be done for the Tigers if they want to live up to preseason expectations, and that starts with their matchup with Tennessee on Saturday.
