Missouri Tigers vs. Indiana Hoosiers Preview: Can the Hoosiers Pull the Upset on a Scary Saturday?

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

This hasn't been the easiest day for SEC teams to win the games in which they're favored. And Missouri is traveling to play a B1G team

On what is already shaping up to be a dangerous day for SEC teams, Missouri heads north to take on Indiana in what could be a tricky match-up. The Hoosiers lost at home to Navy in between walloping Indiana State and blowing out Bowling Green -- not the kind of resume that should make even a middle-of-the-pack SEC team scared -- but, again, this has been the kind of day where those unimpressive resumes have threatened to trip up conference teams.

And Mizzou has at times struggled with its two cupcakes this year. The Tigers dropped 58 points on Murray State to win easily, but only after the Tigers railed 14-13 after the first quarter. And the 38-23 win against Toledo was a little closer than it might look. Missouri has decent numbers on both sides of the ball, but they haven't exactly been overwhelming against underwhelming competition so far.

But Indiana hasn't played much better teams and has struggled to contain the run. They are 108th in the country, allowing opponents to churn out 237 yards a game on the ground, despite beating one of their three opponents by 38 points. Against a team that gains 274 yards a game running, the Hoosiers have to hope for an upset -- because it's the best chance for them to win.
