Mizzou Moves up to No. 6 in BCS; AP Has Tigers at No. 7


Saturday's victory over the Oklahoma Sooners in Columbia shot Mizzou ever higher in the national rankings.

With its 36-27 win over top-ranked Oklahoma, Missouri moved up from No. 11 in the BCS to No. 6. (The Sooners dropped from No. 1 to No. 9.)

Likewise the Tigers jumped from No. 18 in the Associated Press poll to No. 7 today.

This weekend doesn't get any easier for Mizzou as they'll be in Lincoln to face the Cornhuskers -- ranked No. 14 in the BCS.

Still, let's savor for one more day Missouri's first victory over Oklahoma in more than a decade.
