The Tennessee Volunteers are hungry for their first SEC win since the overtime thriller against Vanderbilt University one year ago. They'll have a comparable opponent in the Missouri Tigers, whose first year in the SEC has been a baptism by fire.
Tennessee (4-5) nearly suffered a shocking upset last week when the University of Troy took the Vols to the brink with a 55-48 barn-burner. Neyland Stadium was grossly under capacity, something that needs to change with two remaining home games this year.
The Missouri Tigers (4-5) can claim a 23-point over the University of Kentucky as their only in-conference win this year. Otherwise, they've fared the same as Tennessee against the likes of the University of Florida, University of Georgia, University of South Carolina and the University of Alabama. They gave Florida a scare last week, but that's it.
This game features a match-up of similar teams both in talent and record. I expect it to be a great one.
