Three more wins and Missouri has a perfect home season.

Nothing like a little top-10 competition to test that dominance.

Southeastern Conference-leading Florida comes to town Tuesday night and the memory of the 31-point rout last month in Gainesville is still fresh in the Tigers' minds. The fifth-ranked Gators are coming off another 31-point rout at Auburn, too.

The Tigers (18-7, 7-5 SEC) are 14-0 at Mizzou Arena, beating Alabama by 16, Georgia by 17 and Mississippi by 19 in conference play.

The road does not seem to bother Florida (21-3, 11-1), which led by 25 at halftime at Auburn on Saturday behind a season-best 15 3-pointers. The Gators have handled their past three conference opponents by an average of 24 points since the lone loss at Arkansas.
