Missouri is a team with nothing left to lose, and that’s why it may be most dangerous.
The Tigers, already eliminated from bowl contention, proved just that in a 26-17 win over Vanderbilt on Saturday. By proxy, they started digging a grave for the Commodores’ bowl hopes.
But it was a much-needed win for Missouri, despite the fact that the Tigers season will wrap up in two weeks. It was the first conference win for Barry Odom, and you better believe he was emotional after the game.
And, in the small victories department, Missouri moved up a spot in the latest SEC Country Power Poll. The Tigers switched spots with Vanderbilt, going from No. 14 to No. 13 in this week’s voting.
The 26-person panel consists of voters from SEC Country and across the nation.
Missouri gets two more chances to be the spoiler this season. It could end Tennessee’s SEC East hopes with a big upset win in Knoxville this weekend.
The Tigers then close the season with a home game against Arkansas in the Battle Line Rivalry.
Two wins would give Missouri its second 5-7 season in a row. Not a proud mark, but it would be a welcome sight after how the previous six weeks fared for the Tigers.
