As we did with TCU earlier this morning, let's take a look at how Missouri has done historically in the SEC, where it may move in the near future.
The teams haven't played since 1978, but none of the three meetings were decided by single digits.
Arkansas and Missouri split bowl games in 2003 and 2008, but hadn't met since 1963.
Missouri won the only meeting, 34-17, in the 1973 Sun Bowl.
Missouri beat the Gators, 20-18 in the 1966 Sugar Bowl.
Georgia beat the Tigers, 14-0, in the 1960 Orange Bowl.
Kentucky won meetings in 1965 and 1968, but Missouri won the first meeting in 1905 ... so they got that going for 'em.
Missouri won the only meeting in the 1978 Liberty Bowl, 20-15.
Mississippi State (2-0)
Missouri won both meetings, in 1981 and 1984.
Ole Miss (5-1)
Missouri swept a home and home in 2006 and 2007, and its only loss came in 1974. That was one of four meetings in the 1970s.
South Carolina (2-0)
Missouri erased an early 28-0 lead to beat the Gamecocks in the 2005 Independence Bowl, and won a meeting in the 1979 Hall of Fame Bowl.
The next time Smokey and Truman meet will be the first.
Vanderbilt won the last meeting in 1958, but Missouri won the first two meetings in 1895 and 1896.
There's not much to take historically, but the recent history skews toward the Tigers.
Total record: 20-8-1
