COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - There's one more hurdle to clear for the school nobody saw coming. Beat No. 19 Texas A&M at home on Saturday and No. 5 Missouri, an SEC afterthought back in August, goes to the conference championship game.
Coach Gary Pinkel acknowledged on Monday that it's a big deal.
He'll downplay it as much as possible with players. Except for alterations to the practice routine because of Thanksgiving, it'll be another work week for the Tigers (10-1, 6-1 SEC).
