Mizzou Eager to Put Last Year’s SEC Play Behind It
Missouri's inaugural year in the Southeastern Conference was one the Tigers would rather forget.
Handicapped by injuries, Missouri finished 2-6 in conference and 5-7 overall, failing to extend its school-record bowl streak to eight seasons.
Now healthy, the Tigers (4-0) appear to have righted the ship. They rank in the top three in the SEC in scoring (45.5), rushing yards (262.2) and passing yards (286.8). Defensively, they've limited opponents to 21 points per game and have forced 10 interceptions.
Missouri is the only SEC school yet to have played a conference game, but that will change once it travels to Vanderbilt (3-2, 0-2) on Saturday.
