Only legendary coach Don Faurot, who went 101-79-10 in 19 seasons during two stints at MU (1935-42, 1946-56), has won more.
Pinkel passed Dan Devine, who went 93-37-3 during 1958-70, earlier in the season. Hell have a chance to match Faurots record next Saturday against Texas A&M.
Under Pinkel, Missouri has won 10 games or more four times, all in the last seven seasons. The Tigers also have won or shared seven conference division titles during that same span.
• Missouri sold about 5,000 tickets for the game and estimated that 8,000 Tigers fans were in attendance at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium, which was host to the ninth-largest crowd (61,168) since the stadium opened in 1915.
Our fans get the SEC and the responsibility that goes with being an SEC fan, Pinkel said. Im very thankful to them and happy for them that we could come away with a win.
