As they return from a bye week, the Missouri Tigers play host to the Kentucky Wildcats on Saturday as both teams will be vying for their first Southeastern Conference victory of the season.

Missouri (3-4, 0-4 in the SEC) was last seen on a stormy Oct. 13, when they were blown out by nation's top team, the Alabama Crimson Tide, 42-10. Redshirt freshman quarterback Corbin Berkstresser is expected to get the start in place of the injured James Franklin, who suffered a sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee in the Tigers' 19-15 loss to Vanderbilt Oct. 6.

Berkstresser was 12-of-29 passing for 126 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions against the Crimson Tide.

The Wildcats (1-7, 0-5 in the SEC) are coming off of a 29-24 loss to the Georgia Bulldogs on Saturday and have dropped six straight games overall, with their lone victory of the season coming over Kent State on Sept. 8.

According to OddsShark, the game spread opened at 15½ points in favor of the Tigers but has since dropped, currently sitting with Missouri as 13½-point favorites.

Kickoff is set for 11 a.m. CT at Faurot Field, and the game will be televised on ESPNU and WatchESPN.
