(KSDK Sports) -- The Tigers fell again in both the AP and USA Today coaches' poll this week, to 21 and 20 respectively and this week won't be any easier, as the Tigers once again try to get that elusive first road win, traveling to College Station, Texas on Thursday to take on Texas A&M.

The Tigers are 0-4 away from home, but are 3-1 in neutral-court games.  Missouri is 2-0 vs. the Aggies under Head Coach Frank Haith, winning both meetings last season, including a 71-62 win in College Station last year.

Winning on the road is never easy.  

Video: On Monday, Coach Haith addressed the issue in his weekly press conference.

The Tigers are coming off another conference win, having defeated Auburn on Saturday.  Missouri's newcomers fueled that win.  Keion Bell (24 points) and Earnest Ross (23 points) had their high-point outputs as Tigers, with Ross hitting 5-of-6 treys against his former club.

Missouri remains one of college basketball's most balanced scoring teams this season.   The Tigers have five players averaging double figures in points and a sixth player, Keion Bell, is averaging 9.8 points a night.  Bell has been playing some of his best basketball of late, averaging 15.0 points on 61 percent shooting from the floor over his last five games played.
