One way or another, it figures to be a night to remember for the Missouri Tigers football program. The No. 7 Georgia Bulldogs are visiting Faurot Field in Columbia as the school begins a new chapter in its sporting history.

"It's the first SEC game, the first SEC home game, so it is going to go down in history," Missouri coach Gary Pinkel told The Associated Press. "They are always going to point at it and talk about it, look at it and how it came out."

Having departed from the Big 12, Missouri faces SEC East foe Georgia in a battle of 1-0 teams. Led by freshman phenom Todd Gurley's three touchdowns, the Bulldogs powered to a ramshackle 45-23 win over Buffalo in Week 1. In its opener, Mizzou hung 62 points on the Southeastern Louisiana Lions. They figure to face sterner challenges from the titans of the Southeastern Conference throughout the season.

Can the Tigers cope with that famed SEC speed? Will the suspension of a few Bulldogs players open the door for a memorable upset?
