These two teams are vying for a shot at finishing the season somewhere in the middle of the East. A loss puts the loser in a big hole, especially Missouri. It would be easy to pick Kentucky but these Tigers knocked off LSU a couple weeks ago, rattling off 45 points. I believe UK does have the better defense in this one and the Cats should prevail. Keep in mind though, that Mizzou has had a couple weeks to prepare for this one so who knows?
