Well, all good things must come to an end. The #25 ranked Mizzou football team fell to SEC East opponent Kentucky, ending their 11-game road winning streak.
The Wildcats came into this game fresh off a loss to the Florida Gators, and they felt like they had a lot to prove. After being neck-and-neck almost all game, Kentucky proved they aren’t just a basketball school, beating the Tigers 21-13.
The Mizzou football team, entering the game undefeated, have not played like a back-to-back divisional champion in their first three games. Although ranked and yet to lose a game in 2015, they were underdogs going into the game in Lexington. Their play on Saturday showed why they weren’t the road favorites.
Anyone watching this game could tell that the Tigers weren’t as committed to the cause as their opponents were. They seemed lackadaisical, which ended up affecting their play.

Let’s start with the good.
