Missouri Tigers Football Schedule Analysis: The Tigers don’t have to deal with Alabama, LSU or Auburn from the West, but they have to face Texas A&M in the middle of the season at the end of an interesting first half run. At long as Mizzou can at least split against Kentucky and Boston College on the road, it should be off to a hot start with Central Michigan, SE Missouri State and North Texas at home.
The second half of the season doesn’t start out poorly with a date at Vanderbilt after the week off. The big problem? Georgia and Florida come up in November.
Best Case Scenario: 9-3. If everything goes right for the Tigers, they win at least one of the three big dates against Texas A&M, Georgia and Florida, and they only lose one other game against a Kentucky or maybe against Arkansas. There are enough winnable games to dream of ten wins, but …
Worst Case Scenario: 5-7. The Tigers could absolutely lose to Kentucky and Boston College on the road, and they might drop the dates with Texas A&M, Georgia and Florida with ease. If everything goes way wrong, the team loses everything but the games against the mediocre to sad.
