The Missouri Tigers again seek their first SEC win this weekend.
The Missouri Tigers will once again seek their first Southeastern Conference win Saturday night when they host the Vanderbilt Commodores at Memorial Stadium.
Mizzou enters the game at 3-2 overall but 0-2 in the SEC, with losses to Georgia and South Carolina. Saturday's contest is the first of three consecutive conference home games for the Tigers in October, with No. 1 Alabama scheduled to come to Columbia next week.
Mizzou has no room to look ahead to the Crimson Tide, however. Vanderbilt is 1-3 on the season, but all three Commodore losses came at the hands of teams currently undefeated and ranked in the Top 25: Georgia, South Carolina, and Northwestern.
Vandy has struggled offensively, but has had some success with halfback Zac Stacy, who has run for 341 yards and a touchdown and averaged almost seven yards per carry against Georgia last week.
Kickoff is scheduled for 6:00 CT at Memorial Stadium. Television coverage is available on Fox Sports channels and ESPN3. Missouri enters the game as a 7.5-point favorite, with the total set at 44 points.
