Missouri Tigers Upend Georgia Bulldogs, Move Swiftly Up SEC Ladder
In the program’s first full year as an SEC team, the Missouri Tigers finished the 2012 season with a 5-7 record. The Tigers were also exploited by their SEC counterparts as Missouri found itself at the bottom of the totem pole with a 2-6 conference record .
However, the year is now 2013 and the Tigers are playing better football than anyone in the SEC! With a spotless 6-0 record, Missouri is currently behind only the Florida Gators in the SEC East. Many predicted Missouri’s five-game winning streak would be snapped by the Georgia Bulldogs on Saturday, but apparently nobody told the Tigers, as they defeated the Bulldogs by a score of 41-26.
This is the kind of road victory that puts the 25th-ranked Tigers on the map as the 7th-ranked Bulldogs are nearly unbeatable at home. In fact, this is Missouri’s first road victory over a top-ten team in the country since 1981! Tigers quarterback James Franklin left this game prematurely with a shoulder injury, yet Saturday’s big-time victory should show Missouri that it can compete in the conference after all.
