Missouri To Be Placed In SEC East, According To Reports

A decision has been made on what division the Missouri Tigers would be in now that they are officially heading to the SEC. Missouri will be heading to the SEC East according to Pat Dooley of the Gainesville Sun:

High-ranking source in SEC tells me Mizzou definitely going to the East. Gators have a new rival. Bama didn't want to lose UT. Story up soon

ESPN's Andy Katz is also reporting Missouri to the SEC East. Even though putting Missouri in the East instead of the more geographical West will make it easier to preserve rivalries within the SEC instead of pairing Missouri with Texas A&M in the West division. Had Missouri gone to the West there would have been some big changes on who would go to the East and what rivalries would be diminished. Texas A&M and Missouri will probably be the permanent cross rivals in the SEC.
