Tennessee Volunteers @ Missouri Tigers: Gameday Thread


The Tennessee Volunteers are in Columbia, MO tonight to take on the #10 (# 9 in BCS) Missouri Tigers.

Missouri has been the surprise of the SEC so far this season, winning their first seven games of the season before finally losing to South Carolina last Saturday.

The Vols are coming off a blowout loss to Alabama. They’re looking for their first win on the road against a ranked opponent since 2006.

Tennessee will be looking to true freshman Josh Dobbs to lead them to victory over Missouri. Dobbs is making his first career start for the Vols. He’s the third starting quarterback so far this season for the Volunteers. He takes over for junior Justin Worley who injured his thumb against Alabama. Worley is expected to miss 3-5 weeks.
