One thing working in the Missouri Tigers' favor as they prepare for their first SEC conference game is coach Gary Pinkel's stellar career record against the powerhouse league.
Pinkel is 9-2 lifetime against current SEC schools, a mark sure to comfort Tigers fans as the team prepares to host No. 6 Georgia at 6:45 p.m. Saturday. Five of those wins (and one loss) have come against fellow SEC newcomer Texas A&M, but Pinkel is still an impressive 4-1 against the familiar SEC schools.
The game will be televised nationally on ESPN2.
Missouri left the Big 12 for the SEC beginning this season. The Tigers won their season opener with Southeastern Louisiana, 62-10.
