As the Aggies prepare for their huge matchup with Missouri this Saturday Night, Gig Em Gazette began to take a look at the history of these two teams. Their matchups date back to 1957 believe it or not. The Aggies got off to a hot start in this series winning their first six games against the Tigers. The Aggies won the first two games by a combined 40-0 score.
The 1990′s weren’t much better than the 1950′s for the Tigers as they would once again go winless against the Aggies. The Aggies outscored the Tigers 167-41 in those four games. Which by the way included 73-0 romping in Columbia, Missouri. For the first 40+ years the Aggies owned the Tigers in this series.
In the first decade of the new millennium the Tigers would fight back. The Tigers would take the first matchup between the two teams. From 2002-2007 Missouri won three of their four matchups while both were members of the Big 12. They would also take both matchups since the start of 2010, however last season they would meet for the first time since joining the SEC.
The Aggies would impose their will on the Tigers at Kyle Field 59-29. Johnny Manziel was responsible for five scores in this game (3 passing, 2 rushing). Manziel threw for 372 yards and ran for another 67. This Aggie offense ran up and down the field on their way to their 10th win that season.
