Vanderbilt vs. Missouri: Tigers seek first SEC football victory

Douglas Jones-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Both Missouri and Vanderbilt are seeking their first victory in conference play this season when they square off against each other in Columbus this Saturday.

The Missouri Tigers are still looking for their first SEC football victory as they prepare to host Vanderbilt this Saturday.

Missouri is 0-2 in the SEC after falling to fifth-ranked Georgia, 41-20, and sixth-ranked South Carolina, 31-10, in its first two conference bouts. The Tigers are 3-2 on the season overall and are coming off a 21-16 victory over the University of Central Florida last Saturday.

Vanderbilt is also 0-2 to start the season in SEC play after barely losing to South Carolina in week one, 17-13. The Commodores also fell to Georgia, 48-3, on Sept. 22. The Commodores are 1-3 on the year with their only win coming against Presbyterian, 58-0, on Sept. 15.

Kendial Lawrence leads the Tigers in rushing with 395 yards and five touchdowns and carried the ball a season-high 19 times versus Central Florida last week. Freshman wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham scored the first touchdown of his career on an 80-yard reception from quarterback James Franklin last week. The touchdown was Green-Beckham's lone reception of the game.

The Tigers' kick-off against the Commodores is 7 p.m. ET.
