Missouri is scheduled to play four ranked opponents: No. 2 Alabama, No. 6 Georgia, No. 9 South Carolina, No. 23 Florida. Three other opponents (Texas A&M, UCF, Tennessee) are receiving votes. (And despite good press, Vandy is not.)
Mizzou, meanwhile, received three votes; that's the same number as Tennessee and Florida International, fewer than Louisiana Tech and Virginia, and two more than Texas Tech. This is good news for The Beef, who is now probably off the hook on T.J. Moe's Disrespect Meter.
