Missouri Tigers football
The Tigers shocked the college football world by going 11-2 in their second season in the SEC. Many Tiger fans were disappointed in their initial showing in the SEC. Gary Pinkel said before the season that the Tigers had a number of injuries that played a role in how poorly the Tigers played in 2012. National media didn’t believe him and wrote off Mizzou. However, this team just kept winning and the breaks began to fall in Mizzou’s favor. The Tigers were a missed field goal away from an undefeated regular season. The Tigers will cap off their season on Friday when they play the Oklahoma State Cowboys.
