After losing 19-15 to Vanderbilt on Saturday, the Missouri Tigers find themselves at the bottom of SEC standings.
Though Missouri has alternated wins and losses this season, giving it an even 3-3 record, Missouri has dropped all of its SEC contests, and is 0-3 in the SEC East.
Rising to the top of the SEC East division is completely unrealistic for Missouri. South Carolina, who the Tigers already lost to, currently lead the SEC East with a 4-0 record. Missouri also trails the Florida Gators (3-0), Georgia Bulldogs (3-1) and Vanderbilt Commodores (1-2).
Missouri also faces its most difficult game of the year on Saturday, when it hosts the top-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide.
Alabama and Mississippi State are currently tied atop the SEC West standings, with 2-0 records.
Missouri will have five more opportunities to notch its first SEC win this year, with dates against Alabama, Kentucky, Florida, Tennessee and Texas A&M still on the schedule.
