TIGERS WIN 5TH STRAIGHT

The Missouri Tigers won their fifth straight game, all at home, in a 38-27 win over Ole Miss Saturday night. With losses by Georgia and Florida Saturday, Mizzou is the only team in the SEC East still undefeated in conference play. The Tigers gave up an early touchdown before scoring 28 straight points, helped in part by a defensive stop late in the first half.
