M-I-Z-Z-O-U: Missouri Beats Aggies, Earns Right To Host College Gameday

Shane PattonCorrespondent IOctober 17, 2010

The Missouri Tigers remain undefeated after traveling to College Station and dominating the Texas A&M Aggies.

The Tigers improve to 6-0 on the season, only the second time the Tigers have been 6-0 under head coach Gary Pinkel. Pinkel had been under fire for some off the field issues and for what some fans considered a down year in 2009 for Mizzou, although the Tigers did post an 8-5 record.

Mizzou’s defense continued to play well, racking up seven sacks of Aggie QB Jerrod Johnson, who was a preseason pick for Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year.

After suffering a hip pointer last week, Blaine Gabbert played his best game of the season, passing for 361 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions.

Gabbert’s first half stats were off the charts, completing 22-of-33 passes for 233 yards before halftime. Gabbert was in complete control of the Tiger offense and was able to finish the game without turning the ball over as he ignored his injury and the 80k plus crowd to lead MIzzou to victory.

By the time Texas A&M finally reached the endzone, there was only 8:37 left in the fourth quarter, which proved to be too little too late as the game ended with the Tigers ahead 30-9.



The Missouri Tigers will host ESPN's College Gameday next week when they play host to the Oklahoma Sooners for a Big 12 showdown featuring the two remaining unbeaten teams in the conference.
