2014 Opponent: Missouri (11/22/14 @ Neyland Stadium)

Missouri had an amazing 2013 season and they capped it off with a huge win in the Cotton Bowl, beating Oklahoma State by a score of 41-31.

The Tigers took everyone by surprise this past season. At one point they looked like they might be destined for a spot in the national championship game.

Auburn ended those hopes, however, in the SEC championship game, but that shouldn’t deter folks from thinking that Missouri was a powerhouse program in 2013.

The Vols have lost two in a row to Missouri since they joined the SEC and it’s not looking good for Tennessee’s chances to end that streak in 2014.
