It is Missouri's first game this season against an SEC conference rival, and just the third time the Tigers have been pegged as underdogs since 2012.

The game is the third in as many years between the two clubs with South Carolina claiming victory in their last two meetings, SU and ATS. The Gamecocks have won three straight since being shocked 52-28 by the Aggies in their season opener, but have covered just once in their three wins.
