CFB: (5) Missouri vs. (21) S. Carolina
Everything has been breaking right for Missouri. A perfect 7-0 record and back-to-back wins over slumping Florida and Georgia teams have the Tigers sitting pretty in the SEC East. Two ranked teams remain on the schedule, starting with Steve Spurrier's South Carolina team that is coming off a disappointing loss to Tennessee.
