Preview/GameThread: Texas A&M vs. Mizzou

Missouri just ended a 13-game losing streak. They're bad, but they've got a little momentum for the first time in a while (7:30pm; SECN)

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Our game against LSU followed a familiar script, as the Aggies simply had too much talent for the Tigers in an 85-73 road victory.

Tonight's game should look pretty similar, as Missouri had lost thirteen straight before last Saturdays' win over Arkansas.

They've got a little momentum, sure. But we're still massive favorites and should put this one to bed with little fuss.

Time: 7:30 pm

Location: Reed Arena

TV: SEC Network

Line: Texas A&M is favored by 14 points

****************************

Yes, Mizzou is bad. As bad (or worse) than LSU. But they're a different kind of bad, if that makes sense. They've got less talent than LSU, but they've got more fight. A less talented team with a little moxie can be tougher to put away than a decent squad that crumbles at the first sign of trouble, and I believe we've got the former on our hands tonight.

We should still win comfortably, but we're dealing with a team that has a momentum for the first time in six weeks. It will be interesting to see how both squads fire out of the blocks tonight.
