Jonathan Franklin was not available for Missouri in that loss but the Tigers were still able to generate 465 offensive yards. The Tigers had success running the football in defeat as the team netted 189 yards rushing and ran for nearly 5 ½ yards per run attempt. Henry Josey was not in the lineup for Missouri in the backfield for that game as well. The Missouri Tigers are an outstanding offensive team as they average 491 yards a game. They score nearly 40 points per contest which ranks 15th in college football in scoring offense. Missouri has a very glaring weakness and its in pass defense. The Tigers allow 271 yards passing per game ranking 114th worst in college football. They are facing a quarterback in Johnny Manziel who knows how to close inside the red zone. Texas A&M is the fifth rated passing team in college football so that’s a strength versus weakness angle that fits in the favor of Texas A&M in this game as they should pile up the points on offense. Texas A&M has not been good defensively as they rank 109th in college football in total offense by allowing 460 yards per game.
