Challenges for Missouri
NMSU is a team that is out of its league against the SEC. Actually, they are not in a league as they are an FBS independent. Regardless, Missouri cannot afford to sleep on the Aggies. NMSU will start at quarterback either Diego Pavia or Gavin Frakes. Both of these players complete about 50 percent of their passes and each averages only about 70-85 yards passing a game. Both have four touchdown passes. The two have thrown a combined 10 interceptions.
Saturday‘s game kicks off at 6:30 PM ET (7:30 PM ET). Watch this SEC football game on the ESPNU Network.
