Missouri gave Florida everything it could handle, but the Tigers came up short in a 14-7 loss Saturday and dropped to 4-5 overall and 1-5 in conference play. Missouri sits in fifth place in the SEC Eastern Division.
With the win, the Gators (8-1, 7-1 SEC) kept their slim hopes of an East title alive. Florida's conference season is over, and it needs a Georgia loss to advance to the SEC Championship Game. The Bulldogs (8-1, 6-1) defeated Ole Miss, 37-10, on Saturday. With a win over rival Auburn in its next game, Georgia will wrap up the Eastern Division title. Vanderbilt (5-4, 3-3) improved to .500 in conference play and moved one step closer to bowl eligibility with a 40-0 win at Kentucky (1-9, 0-7).
In the West, Alabama (9-0, 6-0) staged a stunning rally in the final minutes against LSU (7-2, 3-2) to win, 21-17, and remain unbeaten. Texas A&M (7-2, 4-2) moved into second place in the division with a 38-13 victory at Mississippi State (7-2, 3-2).
