Missouri vs. Texas A&M 2012: TV schedule, game time, spread and more

Thomas Campbell-US PRESSWIRE

Johnny Football can break Cam Newton's SEC record for total offense Saturday night.

The Missouri Tigers (5-6, 2-5 SEC) need a win Saturday night to play in a bowl. Their inconsistent offense, which ranks 11th in the SEC in yardage and points per game, might or might not be helmed by quarterback James Franklin, who was concussed last week against Syracuse. Freshman backup Corbin Berkstresser has a 48.9 completion rate with three touchdowns and six picks in spot play this season. Whoever quarterbacks will need help from freshman receiver Dorial Green-Beckham, who has three scores in the Tigers' last two games, and tailback Kendial Lawrence, who has rushed for 414 yards and six touchdowns in the last four games.

With a win at Kyle Field, Texas A&M (9-2, 5-2) can win double-digit games for the first time since 1998 and snap a three-game losing streak to Missouri. Johnny Manziel needs 167 yards of offense to break Cam Newton's 2010 SEC record for total offense. Manziel is averaging 378.3 yards per game. If the Aggies win and LSU and Alabama choke in their weekend rivalry games, Texas A&M will play for an SEC championship.

Game time, TV channel: 7 p.m. ET, ESPN2
