Missouri Vs. Nebraska: Will The Huskers Miss The Tigers When They're Gone?

Nebraska hasn't had the greatest run of luck in the Big 12 this year. They lost to Texas, couldn't defend against Oklahoma State, and will be playing Missouri without Eric Martin. But some Husker fans are already feeling pangs of nostalgia for their soon-to-be ex-conference:

Missouri has won four out of the last seven, two of the last three in blowouts, including the last in Lincoln, 52-17.

It is time to give the Tigers some due? Maybe admit that we'll miss playing them? Even call them a rival just one time before we play them for the last time as fellow members of the Big 12 and the old Big Eight, if for no other reason than to acknowledge a 95-game series dating back to 1900?

It's funny how the season has worked out so far. Nebraska wanted the Texas game to be such a big deal, while Missouri hid in the shadows. But here it is - the biggest game this season, a much bigger game than Texas, one that will most likely determine the winner of the Big 12 North.
