Mizzou Enters Texas A&M Week As Three Point Underdogs

Mizzou football is 5-0 for the fourth time since 2006. Their scoring defense is third in the country. They're coming off of a shutout of a Big 12 opponent (Colorado).

And they're 'dogs heading down to Texas A&M.

The oddsmakers are currently saying A&M is anywhere from a 3-3.5 favorite at home.

Mizzou enters Saturday's game against Texas A&M with some impressive defensive numbers. They're the third ranked scoring defense at just 11.2 points per game.

Last week, before the shutout of Colorado, they were 10th in the country. They've been hit hard with injuries and suspensions -- Aldon Smith, Will Ebner, Luke Lambert, Jasper Simmons, Jarrell Harrison -- but continue to put up solid numbers with their replacements.

This is Mizzou's biggest test yet and the first time this season they're underdogs.
