COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) Braylon Webb has made 30 starts for Missouri, the most by any current Southeastern Conference safety. He still expects to have the "jitters" in the Tigers' opener against an overmatched Football Championship Subdivision opponent.
The 24th-ranked Tigers host South Dakota State on Saturday. The Jackrabbits play in the Missouri Valley Football Conference and are 0-6 against Football Bowl Subdivision opponents since moving to Division I in 2004.
South Dakota State coach John Stiegelmeier said the matchup might be the toughest in school history, but that his team wasn't traveling to be "tourists."
Defending SEC West champion Missouri is 13-0 against Football Championship Subdivision teams.
