The Missouri Tigers are set to host the Tennessee Volunteers for Week 11 of the college football season. Kickoff from Columbia, MO is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, November 11 while airing on CBS and streaming on Paramount+.
Tennessee (7-2, 3-2 SEC) suffered losses to the Florida Gators and Alabama Crimson Tide earlier in the season, but the Volunteers are currently riding a two-game winning streak. Last week, the Volunteers had a reprieve from their conference schedule in a commanding 59-3 victory over the UConn Huskies.
Missouri (7-2, 3-2 SEC) fell 30-21 at the No. 1 ranked Georgia Bulldogs last week, but the Tigers put up a valiant effort on the road. Despite the success this season, Missouri is 0-2 against ranked teams this season.

Our Best Bet for Tennessee vs. Missouri
Missouri has the benefit of home field advantage, but the Tigers could be operating without star WR Luther Burden III, who is questionable after picking up an injury at Georgia last week. If he’s out or limited, then the scales would tip in Tennessee’s favor. This should be a high-scoring game between two potent offenses, and Missouri could struggle to keep up if their impact player is less than 100%.
