COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher warned his team all week that it couldn't afford a letdown after its upset of top-ranked Alabama. His message got through, as the 21st-ranked Aggies buried Missouri early in a 35-14 victory Saturday.
"We preached it, preached it, preached it, yelled it, preached it, yelled it, preached it," Fisher said.
Missouri's run defense, which ranks last in the nation, has been the cure for many hangovers this season. Texas A&M's running back duo of Isaiah Spiller and Devon Achane took full advantage of the porous defense. Spiller rushed 20 times for 168 yards and one touchdown, and Achane added 16 carries for 124 yards and two scores for the Aggies (5-2, 2-2 Southeastern Conference).
