Gopher problem: Mizzou's reputation on the line in Citrus Bowl

Columbia, Mo. -- If the SEC championship offered Missouri a huge chance to gain respect, the Citrus Bowl threatens to do just the opposite. A 42-13 loss to No. 1 Alabama did little to silence the doubters who say the Tigers benefitted from a fortunate schedule to rise to the top of a weak SEC East for the second straight year. Now the tables have turned, and Mizzou heads to Orlando...

Citrus Bowl opponent Missouri does a lot of things well

MINNEAPOLIS -- When the Gophers found out they'd be playing Missouri in the Citrus Bowl on Jan. 1, Minnesota's players admittedly didn't know much about the Tigers.
