One more win, and Missouri earns one more game.
Same goes for Syracuse.
Bowl eligibility is the carrot for a pair of .500 schools on Saturday night. In their home finale, the Tigers (5-5) will be trying to clinch their eighth straight postseason game, and the Orange (5-5) will be trying to qualify for the second time in three years.
Both schools have momentum. Last week, Syracuse whipped previously unbeaten and 11th-ranked Louisville 45-26 and Missouri rallied from two touchdowns down at Tennessee to win in four overtimes.
