BCS Rankings: Missouri Tigers Enter Rankings At No. 25, Texas Sits At No. 22

The Missouri Tigers have had a season to forget. Expectations are always high for the Tigers given Gary Pinkel’s success over the last several years, so when the Tigers fell to 4-5, it was a low point for a team struggling to put teams away after watching several impact players leave for the NFL or to graduation. However, it only got worse from there.

Henry Josey, the team’s leading rusher and the top rusher in the Big 12, went down for the season. Soon thereafter, Pinkel was arrested for a DWI that ended up getting him suspended for one game. Yet through it all, the team has ended their season on a nice winning streak and a bowl win would bring them to 8-5 overall.

Given the record and the strength of schedule, Missouri has now entered the top 25 BCS rankings announced tonight on ESPN. It’s a sign that the Mizzou Tigers weren’t as bad this year as some might think and it bodes well for the future.
