South Carolina vs. Missouri preview:
Missouri started out the season with a respectable 2-2 mark. How quickly things can change. The Tigers have dropped four in a row and are in real danger of missing out on a bowl game. Missouri needs to win its four remaining games to be bowl eligible, and the Tigers have a tough road to get there.
South Carolina has had a season of ups and downs. The Gamecocks are coming off of their biggest win of the season. A 24-21 victory over then No. 18 Tennessee has the Gamecocks sitting at 4-4 on the season, when they could very easily be 3-5 and in danger of missing out on a bowl game.
The Gamecocks and Tigers have played six times in history, with the Tigers holding a 4-2 advantage.
South Carolina vs. Missouri prediction:
Neither team is very good. Neither team is slightly good. Both teams are not very good.
Okay, okay. That's out of the system now.
Mizzou fields stellar offense. The Tigers are balanced very well with just under 300 yards through the air per game and just under 200 yards on the ground per game. The problem is their defense isn't very good either.
