COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin doesn't have to say much this week to motivate his team.

The ninth-ranked Aggies (9-2, 5-2 SEC) know what's at stake as they aim for their first 10-win season since 1998, and try to break a 3-game losing streak to Missouri.

Sumlin says: "We're playing a team that no one on this football team has ever beaten. ... That'll be enough to get our attention right there."

Sumlin also knows that his team can't take Missouri (5-6, 2-5) lightly with the Tigers needing a win to become bowl eligible.

Because of a scheduling quirk, these Southeastern Conference newcomers are playing each other in College Station for the third straight season.
