After allowing 31 points a week ago against Arkansas, the Alabama defense will now be tested by one of the top offenses in the Southeastern Conference.

Missouri quarterback Drew Lock leads a Tigers offense that ranks third in the conference with 530 yards per game and he ranks second individually with nearly 300 passing yards per game. He and that group will present another challenge for the Crimson Tide.

"I feel like he has really great vision," linebacker Dylan Moses said. "He can read defenses. He's fast, he's quick. He can throw the ball, has a strong arm. He's just a really good quarterback overall."

Alabama will also have to defend Missouri without starting defensive back Trevon Diggs, who broke his foot against Arkansas.

"It's more of a next man up-type mindset," Moses said. "Of course we care about it, it makes us upset that we lose a guy indefinitely or what not. But it's more of a next man up. We try to prepare our guys for those type of situations."

Alabama and Missouri are set to face off at 6:00 p.m. on ESPN.
