Comments

This is a battle of two teams trying to at least finish in the middle of their divisions. Missouri appears to be a little better than the Vols overall. They have a better quarterback situation and are playing at home. I think Mizzou wins this game by at least 10 points but the Tiger defense does need to play better on third down.
