Oklahoma sits atop the first BCS standing and the Sooners’ first challenge will be at Missouri. The Sooners, 6-0, are No. 3 or 4 in the opinion polls, but a strong schedule favored Oklahoma in the average of computer rankings that account for one-third of the BCS standing.

ESPN began regularly taking the show to college campuses in 1994 but has never visited MU. "GameDay" was on hand for two Missouri games in 2007: a 41-31 loss to Oklahoma in Norman, and the Tigers' 36-28 victory over Kansas in Kansas City. In 2008, "GameDay" visited Texas when the Longhorns played host to Missouri, a 56-31 UT victory.

Next weekend's clash of unbeatens LSU and Auburn will be for pole position in the Southeastern Conference, as well as a chance to enter the national title discussion. It won't, however, feature College GameDay, ESPN's popular traveling college football show.
