Missouri’s offensive outbursts in September seems even longer ago than reality.
Since a big first half against Georgia in Week 4, Missouri’s offense has imploded. The Tigers (2-4, 0-3 SEC) have scored just 21 points in their last two games, and managed just two touchdowns in a 40-14 loss to Florida on Saturday.
One of those touchdowns, in fact, was scored by defensive tackle Josh Augusta, moonlighting as a fullback.
Now, Missouri is the only team in the SEC East that’s winless in conference play.
The Tigers remained near the bottom of the SEC Country Power Poll at No. 13.
The 20-member panel consists of voters from SEC Country and across the nation.
If the Tigers want to better their 5-7 record from a year ago and make a bowl game in Barry Odom’s first season as coach, they’ll have to get a win this weekend against Middle Tennessee State.
From there, Missouri has a stretch against the other teams inhabiting the bottom of the SEC East — home against Kentucky, at South Carolina and then home against Vanderbilt.
All three of those teams, however, have at least one conference win. Vanderbilt got rid of that goose egg with an upset win over Georgia on Saturday.
