What You Need to Know:

  • The Aggies are no longer in a funk. The Aggies are living legends in college football this week.
  • Missouri is 3-3 on the year, 0-2 in SEC play. They defeated North Texas 48-35 last Saturday.
  • Go check out Rock M Nation for the latest on Tiger Football.

Betting Lines:

  • Ags are currently favored by 8.

Historical Notes:

  • The Aggies lead the all-time series 8-7, but Mizzou has scoreboard in the last two meetings (2013 and 2014).
  • Famous University of Missouri alumni include Sheryl Crow and Robert Loggia. Give us some more!
  • Truman the Tiger is not a live mascot, but he does rub elbows with some fine dignitaries.

What To Watch For:

  • TIGER O. Mizzou has the SEC’s second-leading rusher and the third-most prolific passing attack. They’ve found ways to be productive this year.
  • BOUNCING BACK. Last time the unranked Ags knocked off a #1 team at Kyle Field, they followed it up with an absolute god-awful performance and lost to Missouri the ensuing week, which directly led to missing a bowl game. Good thing this is not 2002.
  • LIVING LEGEND- Zach Calzada punched his ticket Saturday for a lifetime of Aggie fame. Anything else he does is just gravy. Here’s to a big season full of delicious, touchdown-laded gravy.

Media Blitz:

  • Venue: Faurot Field
  • Game Time: 11:00 am Saturday
  • Station: SEC Network

Weather:

  • Partly sunny, high of 63.
