Updated Missouri Opponent SP+ Rankings

Breaking news: The SEC is really freaking good. And while Missouri’s non-con schedule is (almost) exactly what a rebuilding team needs - easy games against competition that should provide experience but not a threat - the K-State game in Week 2 is going to be tough, as is every non-Vanderbilt SEC game on the docket.

Here’s the schedule broken down into three buckets of win probability:

Likely Wins

  • Louisiana Tech, Abilene Christian, Vanderbilt, New Mexico State


Likely Losses

  • Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas

Yes, having your four toss-up games on the road isn’t great.
