For the last couple of the weeks, the Missouri Tigers (4-0) were in the weekly Coaches’ Top 25 poll, but this week the Mizzou makes it’s debut in the AP Top 25 despite having the week off after a few teams with less than stellar performances dropped out of the poll.
We’ll start with Big 12 Conference nemesis Texas, who lost to Oklahoma 28-20. Mack Brown’s Longhorns were knocked out of the Top 25 for the first time since since Oct. 15, 2000. Their streak of 162 consecutive weeks in the rankings was the longest active streak in the country.
Three other schools helped Missouri get into the Top 25. USC suffered a last second 32-31 loss to Washington at the Coliseum. North Carolina State fell out of the rankings after one week, following a 41-30 loss to Virginia Tech. After losing to Iowa 24-3, Penn State fell from the Top 25 with their second loss.
The Tigers are 22nd in the Coaches’ Poll and will host Colorado this Saturday at 6 p.m.
