The Texas A&M Aggies and Missouri Tigers are expected to keep this game alive for the future as Missouri is expected to join Texas A&M to the SEC, eventually. Texas A&M is coming off a 33-17 win over the Iowa St. Cyclones, while Missouri is trying to recover from a 45-24 loss to the Oklahoma St. Cowboys, and has lost all three games when facing ranked teams. So, this could be another difficult challenge for Missouri since Texas A&M is ranked No. 16 in the latest polls.
Expect Texas A&M's offense to have a good game against Missouri who is ranked 51st in total defense and 81st in passing defense. Look for the Aggie offense to pass the ball and look for quarterback Ryan Tannehill to have another big game against the Missouri secondary. The Texas A&M running game which is sometimes not utilized enough at times this season will be able to provide another option on offense with Cyrus Gray and Christine Michael.
