The Missouri Tigers will take on the Baylor Bears in a key Big 12 Conference matchup on Saturday against two of the nation's Top 5 teams.

Missouri has been a dominant home team for some time. On Saturday they will try to snap a road losing streak against Top 25 opponents when they take on Baylor in a key Big 12 conference matchup.

Since dropping its first game of the season to Kansas State, Missouri has rattled off three straight wins. The Tigers defeated Texas A&M 70-51 on Monday. Michael Dixon scored 18 points off the bench against the Aggies but in Baylor, Missouri may face its most talented opponent yet.

"Obviously, everyone knows the magnitude of the game, but no one game is going to dictate our season," coach Frank Haith said. "It's a tremendous opportunity, and I think our guys are excited for that opportunity."

Baylor lost for the first time this season on Monday falling 92-74 to Kansas at Allen Fieldhouse.

Game date/time: Saturday, January 21,
