- Texas A&M is coming off a huge win against Alabama
- Missouri currently has a 2-1 record in home games
- Missouri is averaging 37.8 points per game this season
Texas A&M is visiting Missouri in this intriguing Week 7 matchup. The Aggies are coming off a monumental performance against the then #1 Alabama Crimson Tide. They ultimately won the game 41-38.
The key in this matchup is that A&M doesn’t have a “hangover” from last week’s College Football Playoff shaking victory. If they can take it week by week and not live in the past, the Aggies should handle this matchup with ease.
Expect the offense to be a huge factor in this matchup as both teams are fully capable of recording 35 plus points in a matchup. The weather is looking clear and Missouri is hoping their home faithful comes out for support as they plan on pulling the upset against an Aggies team that knows what that feeling is like.

Missouri Preview: Can the Tigers Pull the Upset
The Missouri Tigers welcome this matchup coming off of a Win over the University of North Texas 48-35. They are led by their high-flying offense that is averaging over 35 points per game this season.
Their Achilles heel, especially in the SEC is their lack of defensive ability. While they are averaging over 35 points per game on offense, they also allow 37.5 points per game on defense. They have the ability to put up points in games, but their inability to stop opposing offenses is the main reason they sit at 0-2 in the SEC so far this season.
If the Tigers defense can find any way to stop the Aggies offense, they may have a chance at the upset. If not, this game may be well over before halftime.
Texas A&M Preview: Can the Aggies Continue Winning Ways
The Aggies got themselves back in the Win column when they pulled the upset over the number one team Alabama. If their coaching staff can keep the players from allowing this win to get to their heads, A&M should be poised for another big performance on Saturday.
Their offense, led by quarterback, Zach Calzada will look to have another 40 point outburst against the Tigers’ defense. They currently average 26.3 points per game this season.
The strength of this Aggies team is their defense. They only allow opposing offenses 17 points per game. This matchup will be a good test for Texas A&M against the high-flying offense of Missouri.
If Texas A&M is able to stop the Tigers’ offense from scoring early, they may be able to put this game away before Missouri even knows what hit them.
