Scenario 4: Missouri wins out. Missouri advances to the championship on record. (20%)

Missouri will be favored in their games against Tennessee and Arkansas. They likely won’t be favored against Texas A&M on the road at night. That crowd is going to be loud, angry, and ready to let loose some frustrations after getting manhandled by Auburn in the prior week.

This doesn’t set up well for Missouri at all.

Texas A&M got annihilated by Mississippi State, Ole Miss, and Alabama because the A&M defense is terrible. Still, A&M can score at will with their offense, and that’s been enough for them to beat all their opponents that aren’t currently ranked.

In this scenario, if Missouri wins them all it doesn’t matter what everyone else does, period.
