Texas A&M Notes:
The Aggies three losses this season have come against Alabama and Auburn at home and last week the team dropped a 34-10 decision at LSU. Texas A&M were coming off a bye week after winning three straight games against the likes of Vanderbilt, UTEP and Mississippi St. With a New Year’s Day bowl seemingly out of reach the Aggies can play for a Chick Fil A Appearance at best now with a three losses on their resume. The Cotton Bowl is also a possibility. The best win for Texas A&M came at Ole Miss where they escaped with a 41-38 victory. The three toughest teams on the Texas A&M schedule has all resulted in losses and Missouri can be noted as an elite team that can stand side by side between the Crimson Tide, Tigers and LSU. With all the talent of Johnny Football the signal caller nearly has to be perfect every week as the Aggies sport the 109th ranked defense in all of college football by giving up an average of 460 yards per game. Opponents score 31 points a game against Texas A&M. It is a little too much to ask for any quarterback to try and combat those numbers given up defensively.
Missouri Tigers Notes:
Missouri enters play with a record of 6-1 in the SEC East conference standings holding a one game lead over the South Carolina Gamecocks. Since South Carolina defeated Missouri earlier in the season they hold the tiebreaker over Missouri.
So the east bracket of the SEC Championship Game is set. Should Missouri win on Saturday they will face the Alabama and Auburn winner who face off this week. Should the Tigers fall to the Aggies the Gamecocks would earn the SEC East ticket into the championship game because they have a non-conference tilt with Clemson this week and have been done with regular season conference play.
A blemish on the stat line for Missouri is their pass defense and that must be taken into a account here. Teams throw for 271 yards a game against the Tigers and they just happen to face a Johnny Manziel led squad that can throw the football. It also allows the final opportunity to swing Heisman votes Johnny Football’s way so the Missouri Tigers had better come into this game focuses because the Aggies will be pushing for another Heisman for Johnny Manziel.
