College Football Rankings: AP Poll Drops Mizzou To No. 14; Oregon, Auburn On Top

The Missouri Tigers lost 31-17 to the Nebraska Corn Huskers on Saturday afternoon and the college football rankings dropped them for it. Mizzou, who was previously No. 7 in the Associated Press poll, dropped to No. 14. For Week 9 in college football, it's a sad situation for Mizzou who were 7-0 and ranked No. 6 in the BCS entering the week. On the season as a whole, though, things are looking very good for Mizzou.

Entering the Tigers games against Oklahoma and Nebraska, I said best case scenario would be splitting with those two teams. They're two of the top teams in the country and beating one of them -- both were on the road -- would be great for Mizzou. They did that beating Oklahoma last week and losing to Nebraska this week.

So 1-1 through the toughest stretch of the season isn't bad. The Tigers should feel good about that. Now they had to Texas Tech to take on the Red Raiders and after that it's Kansas State, Iowa State and Kansas. They should be favored to win all of those games.

Mizzou is hoping for a Nebraska loss moving forward so they have a shot at winning the Big 12 North and a shot for a Big 12 championship in the title game.
