Citrus Bowl: BTBS

20

Missouri had Markus Golden, Marcus Murphy, Bud Sasser, and more experience than Minnesota, and the Tigers won the Citrus Bowl and moved to 11-3 as a result.

The Mizzou-Minnesota preview

5

The Citrus Bowl will likely be decided by line play and disasters -- whoever wins in the trenches and avoids field-flipping turnovers, special teams play, etc., will win.

Mizzou-Alabama: BTBS

17

Mizzou needed luck, nearly perfect execution, and some Alabama lapses in the SEC Championship game. The Tigers got none of the three.

The Mizzou-Alabama preview

49

Using weekly F/+ odds, Missouri had only a 2.5 percent chance of winning six in a row to reach the SEC Championship game. The Tigers have a 10 percent chance of beating Alabama -- might as well...

Mizzou-Arkansas: BTBS

16

Mizzou's offense has mastered the art of Just Good Enough, and the Tigers split the Little Things™. Progress!

The Mizzou-Arkansas preview

68

Arkansas is burly, mean, and hot. For that matter, so is Missouri. Time to go bash some rocks together and see if the Tigers can win the SEC East again.

The Mizzou-Tennessee preview

42

Both defenses have rather significant advantages over both offenses when Missouri faces Tennessee, and a single big play or two could make a world of difference.

Mizzou-Kentucky: BTBS

14

Missouri followed the Missouri recipe to a 20-10 win over Kentucky: finish drives better, win field position, win passing downs. And the Tigers are 7-2 because of it.

The Kentucky-Mizzou preview

40

Like a lot of young teams, Kentucky has been pretty inconsistent in 2014. But if the Wildcats can prevent Missouri's ground game from getting traction and win on passing downs, they'll have a...

Mizzou-Vandy: BTBS

12

Bud Sasser stepped up just in time, and the turnover gods smiled on Missouri a bit, and it was just enough to overcome inefficient passing and worse-than-normal finishing of drives and take down...

The Mizzou-Vandy preview

17

The numbers say Mizzou handles Vanderbilt easily on Homecoming in Columbia. Can the Tigers find an offensive groove for the first time in about six weeks, or will they again lean on defense and...

Mizzou-Florida: BTBS

14

Advanced stats and analysis from Missouri's 42-13 win over Florida on Saturday in Gainesville.

The Mizzou-Florida preview

54

If last week's performance against Georgia wasn't the new normal, Missouri will have some matchup advantages to exploit against Florida in Gainesville. But it's up to the Tigers to prove they're...

The Mizzou-UGA preview

19

The winner of Saturday's Missouri-Georgia game will determine the clear SEC East favorite moving forward. In the absence of Todd Gurley, the game will be decided by first-down success and Mike...

Mizzou-SC: BTBS

14

Advanced statistics from Missouri's 21-20 win over South Carolina on Saturday.

The Indiana-Mizzou preview

36

Big plays and the battle in the trenches will tell the tale when Missouri and Indiana kick off in Columbia.

Mizzou-UCF: BTBS

28

Efficiency on offense and havoc on defense have been the recipe for Missouri's 3-0 start.

The Mizzou-UCF preview

21

Missouri has the overall edge against Central Florida, but the Knights might be only a couple of big pass plays away from pulling a minor upset.

Mizzou-Toledo: BTBS

20

Missouri held a slight efficiency advantage over Toledo (particularly in the passing game) and finished drives as well as you can possibly finish drives. That was enough to create a 25-point...

BTBS: Mizzou-SDSU

17

Missouri has a lot of big-play potential on offense but could suffer from efficiency problems when the run isn't enough. Meanwhile, the Tigers should be very efficient against the run but could...

A perfect finish

24

Statistics and analysis from Missouri's 41-31 win over Oklahoma State in the Cotton Bowl Classic on January 3.

Cotton Bowl preview

26

The 2014 Cotton Bowl between Oklahoma State and Missouri will come down to line play and an interesting chess match between coordinators. Can the Tigers take their 12th win of the year?

Sometimes the gameplan doesn't work

88

Advanced stats and analysis from Missouri's 59-42 loss to Auburn in the SEC Championship game in Atlanta.

24

A look at the advanced stats from Missouri's 28-21 win over Texas A&M on Saturday, one that clinched the Tigers' first SEC East title.

Mizzou-A&M preview

46

If Missouri's advantages in the trenches offset the play of Johnny Manziel and Mike Evans, the Tigers should beat Texas A&M and take the SEC East.
