Missouri Tigers Take Down Ole Miss Rebels, One Game Away From Winning SEC East

Coming into the season, I am sure no one expected the Missouri Tigers to win the SEC East. Well, with a victory against the Ole Miss Rebels, the Tigers are now one game away from achieving that feat.

Missouri only allowed 10 points in the game.

The Tigers have now beaten three ranked opponents (at the time). They may have their toughest test of the year in their season finale. Missouri will have to play Johnny Manziel and the rest of the Texas A&M Aggies. A win is certainly not out of the question, especially since LSU just got done beating the Aggies 34-10.

If Missouri can beat Texas A&M, it will more than likely have to play the Alabama Crimson Tide in the SEC championship game. That will be by far the toughest game of the season for the Tigers. Alabama is the No. 1 team in the nation and all.

Who knows what will happen, but Missouri has had a great season and has been one of the best teams in the SEC. The Tigers have had quite the turnaround. They finished with an overall record of 5-7 last year, but they did have to play five top 10 teams (at the time).

This team has only lost one game all season and their record is now 10-1. Their only loss came against the South Carolina Gamecocks in two overtimes.

Missouri finished last season with a loss to the Aggies (59-29). This year could be a lot different and the Tigers will have the SEC title game on the line.
