Missouri vs. Florida

Florida will play at Missouri on Saturday, Nov. 4, in Columbia, Mo., with the kickoff set for 12 p.m..

The game will be televised on ESPN2, it was announced Monday.

Florida enters its rivalry game with Georgia this week at 3-3 overall and 3-2 in the SEC after back-to-back home losses to LSU and Texas A&M.

While the Gators have had their setbacks, Missouri has been the worst team in the SEC this season. The Tigers (2-5, 0-4) picked up a 68-21 win over Idaho last weekend, but they have lost three of their four SEC games by at least 18 points.

The Tigers are in their second season under coach Barry Odom, going 4-8 in his first season.

Florida and Missouri are tied 3-3 in their all-time series, but the Gators have won the last two 40-14 (2016) and 21-3 (2015).

The Gators close SEC play with their neutral-site game with Georgia in Jacksonville this weekend and then road games at Missouri and South Carolina.

Florida could be racing to get bowl eligible down the stretch. If it loses to undefeated Georgia, it would need wins in three of its final four games to reach the necessary six wins.

So while Florida-Missouri may not have the look of a marquee game, it could be huge to the Gators’ postseason chances.
