It was about two hours prior to kick-off against Mizzou when my neighbors and I began tailgating in Summit View Parking Lot, a slab of non-clumsy-friendly gravel loaded with monstrous camper trailers, inebriated tailgaters passing around pre-game bottles of liquor and tons of portable grills deliciously smoking away.

Coming off last year’s so-so, 6-6 record, with a lopsided 13-40 beat down by the Tigers third game into the season, the Pokes seemed starved for revenge. With head coach Craig Bohl frantically trying to escape from under the shadow of Josh Allen, former Poke and current starting quarterback for the Buffalo Bills, an upset was certainly in store for the 18-point underdog.
