Mizzou has a one game lead on both South Carolina and Georiga.
Saturday night, Mizzou ran it's record to 8-1 overall with a 31-3 win over Tennessee.
The Tigers have climbed to ninth in both the AP and coaches polls, and eighth in the BCS rankings.
This week it's at 2-6 Kentucky.
Mizzou coach Gary Pinkel is telling his Tigers not to overlook a Kentucky team that hasn't won a conference game.
Gary Pinkel/Mizzou Coach: "There is so little drop off in teams in this league. Every team we play is good. They have good personell. Some have better years than other years. And certainly this applies to Kentucky. So they are a good football team."
