Tennessee a surprisingly heavy favorite on the road
Tennessee is a 9-point favorite at Missouri on Saturday.
The Vols (6-4, 3-3 SEC) are coming off a 24-0 home win over North Texas on Saturday. Missouri (5-5, 1-5 SEC) beat BYU 20-16 at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Mo.
Missouri has been on an emotional roller coaster lately. The school’s president resigned Monday amid concerns over racial issues on campus. Later in the week, coach Gary Pinkel announced he would resign at season’s end to battle lymphoma.
