    [​IMG]COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- We took a look earlier this week at Missouri's improved defense, and through the first quarter, it's passing its toughest test of the season easily.

    The Tigers haven't allowed a point since Sept. 25, after shutting out Colorado and did the same in the first 15 minutes here, leading 6-0.

    Missouri hasn't allowed Texas A&M to take a snap inside its territory on its first four drives, and has allowed just 48 yards of total offense. Texas A&M quarterback Jerrod Johnson has been under constant pressure, and has completed just 3 of 9 passes for 31 yards.

    Most importantly, the Aggies are 0-for-4 on third downs.

    On the other side of the field, Missouri quarterback Blaine Gabbert has been sharp early, completing 12 of 17 passes for 117 yards and a score. He's been forced out of the pocket a few times as well, and continues to not look bothered by the hip pointer he suffered a week ago.
