The Texas A&M Aggies and the Missouri Tigers clash in what very well could be a future SEC conference match-up. Will the Tigers pull off the upset?
The Texas A&M Aggies and the Missouri Tigers could shortly be moving this Big 12 conference game to the SEC if the Tigers follow suit and join that conference, too. But right now, the Missouri players would like nothing better than to pick up a fourth victory and return to being a .500 team (12:00 p.m. ET, FX; go here for Texas A&M-Mizzou score updates and conversation and here for college football stories from around the country).
The Aggies have rolled to three straight victories since dropping back-to-back games to Top 20 teams. But Texas A&M fans aren't taking this game against the 3-4 Tigers for granted. I Am The 12th Man, our Texas A&M blog, believes a Missouri upset is possible if the Tigers use James Franklin effectively as a dual-threat as well as avoiding the little mistakes.
The Tigers enter this game after a loss to the No. 4 Oklahoma State Cowboys. This game against the Aggies will be their fourth one against a Top 25 team and they likely have two more to go after this. Over at Rock M Nation, Bill Connolly is already looking to the future with James Franklin next year since the Tigers will have a tough time the rest of the season. It'll only get tougher in the SEC.
