Dak Dillon-US PRESSWIRE

The Missouri Tigers will have the task of facing the Florida Gators, who are coming off their first loss of the season, on the road this Saturday.

Missouri, meanwhile, will look to ride the momentum of its first SEC win against Kentucky. The Tigers scored 16 points and held the Wildcats scoreless to move to 4-4 overall this season.

Unusually, Saturday will mark the third time this season that Missouri plays a seventh-ranked opponent, with the first two matchups resulting in losses to the Georgia Bulldogs and South Carolina Gamecocks. The Gators fell to No. 7 in the latest BCS Standings after suffering a 17-9 loss to Georgia at home with an anemic offensive performance.

Quarterback Jeff Driskel will look to cut down on turnovers and lead Flordia against a Tigers defense that ranks 46th in the FBS with 23.6 points against per game.

The SEC tilt will kick-off at at noon on ESPN2 with the Gators as heavy 16.5-point favorites.
