Missouri Vs. Texas A&M Final: The Tigers Complete The Comeback In Overtime Over The Aggies 38-31

The Missouri Tigers defense had been maligned all season, yet in the second half versus the Texas A&M Aggies Gary Pinkel's unit played inspired football by making key interceptions, big hits and sound football. Coupled with a strong running game, the Tigers were able to complete an impressive comeback over the No. 16 ranked Aggies 38-31 in overtime in College Station.

Big 12 leading rusher Henry Josey rushed for 158 yards (111 in the second half) and quarterback James Franklin rushed for 97 yards which caused trouble for the Aggies all game. Franklin put on a performance with his first touchdown score, running it in from 20 yards out by trucking a defensive back, spinning away from another tackle and charging his way into the endzone. Franklin's second touchdown run gave the Tigers a 31-28 lead late in the fourth quarter, before Texas A&M Randy Bullock put in a 35-yard field goal to force the game into overtime.

Franklin's 11-yard touchdown to Marcus Lucas in overtime put the Tigers up 38-31, then the defensive line batted down a Ryan Tannehill pass on 4th down to secure the victory. 

Tannheill had an awesome game, accounting for all four touchdowns (3 passing, 1 rushing) while throwing for 317 yards.

Missouri moves to 4-4 on the season and will begin preparing for a road contest versus the Baylor Bears next Saturday night in Waco, Texas.

Missouri Vs. Texas A&M Halftime Update: Aggies Lead The Tigers 28-17

Ryan Tannehill's four touchdowns have propelled the Texas A&M Aggies to a 28-14 lead over the Missouri Tigers going into the half in College Station, Texas.

Tannehill's first three touchdown came via the air, as aerial strikes to Michael Lamothe, Cyrus Gray and Ryan Swope have totaled to an 18-24 passing performance for 180 yards. Tannehill's fourth touchdown resulted in a read option score at the goal line from three yards out.

Missouri's offense started out well initially, as two touchdowns from sophomore quarterback James Franklin in the first quarter gave the Tigers a 14-7 lead. Franklin scored on an electric 20-yard run, bulldozing over defensive backs and spinning out of tackles to go over the goal line. Franklin then found Eric Waters down the field for a 42-yard pitch and catch score.

Henry Josey, the Tigers star tailback, has only nine touches thus far for 49 yards (47 rushing, 2 receiving) in the first half. Missouri will receive the ball in the second half.
