Jimbo Fisher cautions Texas A&M ahead of 'trap game' at Missouri
Following its upset win over Alabama, Texas A&M now turns its attention to Missouri. The Tigers have hit a bit of a rough patch in Eli Drinkwitz’s 2nd year with the program, sitting at 3-3 with an 0-2 mark in the SEC.
The Aggies have a chance to feast on a Mizzou defense that ranks last in the conference in yards allowed per game and points yielded per game. It’s been a while since the 2 teams have played each other on the gridiron: the last meeting was in 2014, a 37-24 Tigers victory.
“This game is a trap game, just like we were to Alabama,” Jimbo Fisher said during his weekly radio show on Wednesday evening. “Missouri is a very good football team…They play extremely well at home.”
In fact, the Tigers have won 3 of their 4 games in Columbia this year, with their lone loss at Faurot Field coming in a blowout against Tennessee. That said, FCS Southeast Missouri and North Texas, who is currently 1-4, have accounted for 2 of Mizzou’s home victories.
Kickoff is at noon ET on the SEC Network.
