3. LSU Tigers
Despite being the reigning National Champions, LSU is the third toughest team on Mizzou’s schedule. For one, they lost a lot of the talent that got them to that pinnacle, most notably quarterback Joe Burrow and running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire, who left for the NFL.
LSU is still going to be very good, however, and they’re definitely a more talented team than that of Missouri. This will be MU’s third game of the season and it’ll take place in Baton Rouge on October 10th.
Mizzou has only faced LSU once since joining the SEC and it did not go well. LSU pummeled Missouri 42-7 in Baton Rouge and it was never close. While I hate to be too pessimistic, this game will probably look similar to that one in all honesty.
2. Georgia Bulldogs
If there’s a team who truly beats up on Mizzou, it’s the Georgia Bulldogs, who currently having a six-game winning streak against the Tigers. MU has only defeated Georgia once and that came in 2013 with one of the best teams the program has ever had.
Since then though, it’s been a one-sided rivalry, as Georgia has gone a perfect 6-0. There have been some close games between the two, but last year’s game was not one of them, as the Bulldogs won 27-0 in Athens.
Georgia comes to Columbia on November 14th in what should be a fun battle. Missouri had the Bulldogs on the ropes two years ago, but turnovers proved to be the difference and the Tigers lost once again.
