As the Mizzou baseball team transitions to the nation's premier baseball conference - the SEC - this season, there will be a slew of new teams for Tiger fans to get accustomed too. The Tigers will be traveling to and hosting some of the best college baseball programs on a week-to-week basis and MUTigers.com will be previewing each of the new rivals over the next two weeks. Today, we look at Mizzou's first league opponent this season, South Carolina.
