COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — The conference affiliation is brand new and the tailgaters no doubt will show up much earlier. Expect the interstate to be clogged even more than usual, too.
A new era has dawned at Missouri, which makes its Southeastern Conference debut on Saturday night against No. 7 Georgia

Georgia is coming off a 45-23 opening victory over Buffalo. Missouri opened the season with a 62-10 rout of lower-division Southeastern Louisiana.
