BCS Rankings: Missouri Tigers Enter National Bowl Picture At No. 25

Gary Pinkel was arrested. Their top player was gone for the year. The tough schedule proved to be exactly that.

The Missouri Tigers have endured a frustrating season in 2011, but they’re finally beginning to climb out of the ditch that many had placed them in when they reached a record of 4-5 just a few weeks ago. Now they stand at 7-5 on a three game winning streak and are hoping to close out with a bowl win to have an eight game season and reason for hope that James Franklin and Henry Josey can lead them forward as a dynamic running offense.

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.
