Missouri and Auburn will meet in the Georgia Dome and play for the SEC Championship on Saturday in what is already—no matter what happens from here—the least predictable title game in conference history.
The two teams combined to finish 8-16, including 2-14 in conference play, last season. Mizzou was picked to finish sixth in the SEC East at media days in July, while Auburn was pegged to finish fifth in the West.
Alas, both teams have sprinted to one-loss records, and each could claim to have destiny on its side. The game is shaping up to be a fantastic one—especially given how even both teams appear on paper—but in order to become a historic one, it will have to be pretty darn good.
Since the first in 1992, there have been numerous unforgettable games in the SEC Championship. In order to land in the all-time top five, Auburn-Missouri will need to beat the following group of matchups.
