Things are about to get much tougher, though. The Tigers have not played a ranked team yet -- in fact, either Illinois or Texas A&M would qualify as the toughest opponent to date for Missouri -- but face No. 6 Oklahoma next week and No. 5 Nebraska the following week. It could be a perfect time for No. 21 Missouri to announce its presence with authority, or simply come down to Earth. Time will tell.

"You earn respect," Pinkel said of his defense, which limited Texas A&M to just 130 yards of offense in the game's first 35 minutes, and led 23-0 early in the third quarter. "That's just what you do." The Tigers did plenty of it, sending a Texas A&M team with big dreams to a third consecutive loss -- the first of the season on its home field, marring one of the team's preseason goals of going undefeated at Kyle Field.
