Tennessee / Missouri

Missouri was undefeated and ranked fifth in the country before the double-OT loss to the Gamecocks last week. Now, the Tigers must regroup and understand that the SEC East title is within their grasp if they win out still. They are one game up on South Carolina, Georgia and Florida, and own the head-to-head against the latter two. But a second conference loss would throw everything into a crazy whirlwind with all having two losses and owning different head-to-head wins.

Of course, there is still a long way to go.

Tennessee is in the midst of their toughest stretch this season, coming off of a blowout loss to Alabama. This will be the second-straight top-10 opponent, with No.11 Auburn up on the slate next after that.

But the Volunteers have showed that they have plenty of fight. They won against South Carolina a couple of weeks ago, which is the big win that first-year coach Butch Jones was looking for in the program.

A win over Missouri would be icing on the cake though. In order to get that win, they will need to slow down the Tigers offense. Missouri ranks 11th in the country in scoring, putting up 42 points per game.
