Mizzou-ATM Links

First things first (since Mizzou fans are focused as much on Oklahoma as A&M, ahem): GA tickets are now on sale for the Oklahoma game.

    A glance at the latest batch of statistics shows that Mizzou’s improved defense now leads the Big 12 Conference, and ranks 3rd in the nation, in scoring defense. Through 5 games, the Tigers, under 2nd-year Defensive Coordinator Dave Steckel, are allowing an average of just 11.2 points per game. Iowa currently leads the nation with a 10.2 average, followed by #2 TCU (10.3). Nebraska is #4 nationally (12.8), followed by Alabama at #5 (13.3).

    While pitching a shutout against the Buffaloes undoubtedly helped propel the Tigers up the rankings, it wasn’t a one-game deal, as Mizzou entered the CU game ranked 10th nationally in scoring defense. Mizzou entered the CU game allowing 14.0 points per game.

    The 56 points allowed by MU through 5 games is the lowest by a Tiger defense since the 2006 season, when Mizzou permitted 50 points in its first 5 games (also a 5-0 start). In game #6 that year, at Texas Tech, the Tigers notched a 38-21 win in Lubbock, which bumped the 6-game point total to 71 allowed.
