Forget about the SEC East. Thanks to a paltry offense and a defense that can only go so far, the 2015 Missouri Tigers are fighting for bowl eligibility. Bowl eligibility is roughly defined as having at least a 6-6 record. As it sits, the Tigers have a 4-2 record. So Missouri should be a shoo-in for the Independence Bowl, right?

Not necessarily. The Tigers have a tough schedule ahead of them, although with the offense the Tigers have, a schedule with Division III teams would give them fits. Unfortunately for Mizzou, the rest of their schedule consists of SEC teams on all but one occasion. The lone exception is the game against BYU.

Two wins might very well be hard to come by. So which games are the Tigers most likely to win? We’ve gone through the rest of the season and determined which games Missouri is likely to walk away with.
