|Of the eight SEC teams playing out of conference last week, Gary Pinkel’s team was the only one to lose, falling at home to Syracuse. The Tigers are now 5-6 which means they’ll need a big upset to become bowl eligible.||Coaching||There’s no denying what Kevin Sumlin has done in his first year as A&M’s head coach. Remember, the Aggies were 6-6 last year.|
|Mizzou’s offense ranks 113th in the nation in yards per play, due mostly to a dreadful rushing attack.||Offense||The first time Johnny Manziel speaks to the media may be when he gives his Heisman acceptance speech in New York City next month.|
|The Tigers’ D is average, but the better offenses it has faced haven’t had problems putting up big numbers. And A&M is one of those “better” offenses.||Defense||This is an improving unit, one that has looked a lot better the last five games.|
|Missouri’s special teams play ranks in the top 25 according to Football Outsiders.||Special Teams||We found something Manziel can’t do: the star QB missed an extra point attempt last week after his long touchdown pass opened the second half.|
