After a soul-crushing 42-10 defeat by No. 1 Alabama, Missouri looks to rebound on their Homecoming Day against Kentucky.
After losing four consecutive conference games in the SEC, the Missouri Tigers will lick their wounds during the bye, and then a home game against Kentucky on October 27. Their most recent loss, a 42-10 drubbing by BCS No. 1 Alabama last Saturday, left the Tigers still winless in conference play and desperately needing a victory.
Despite an SEC Championship being out of reach, the Tigers will be playing with added incentive at Faurot Field as they celebrate their 101st Homecoming. Visiting Kentucky, who is also 0-4 in SEC play, might be the opponent Tiger fans would choose to notch a win against on their special day. The Wildcats have dropped five straight, including a loss to unranked Western Kentucky. The Tigers should take full advantage of this opportunity to win on their home field, as they visit BCS No. 2 Florida the following week. Things just never get any easier in the SEC.
