Missouri will face off against Southeastern Louisiana in its first ever game as a member of the SEC on Saturday.

The Missouri Tigers will take the field for their first ever game as a member of the SEC on Saturday as they face off against Southeastern Louisiana University of the Southland Conference. Not only will the game represent the first ever Tigers game in the SEC, but it will also feature new field turf being debuted at Faurot Field and new uniforms for the squad as it faces off against the Lions.

After the slow start the Tigers had last season, losing five of their first nine games, they'll look to start strong against an inferior Lions squad that finished 3-8 in 2011. Having duel-threat James Franklin at the helm of the offense, assuming he avoids injury again after a torn labrum in the spring, should help them to that goal assuming he had continue building on his great season from 2011.

The game will be at 6 p.m. CT Saturday at Faurot Field. It will be available for viewing on some pay-per-view networks in the state of Missouri and spillover areas, as well as on ESPN3.
