Various Big 12 power rankings are starting to filter in and I think the placement for Mizzou that makes the most sense is No. 2 behind Oklahoma.
That's where FOX Sports Southwest has them ranked.
The Tigers proved they are for real by defeating the Aggies 30-9 in College Station. They have the No. 2 scoring defense in the nation at 10.8 points per game, but have to stop the Sooners offense this week at home
It's the defense and not the offense that gets them this high ranking. Mizzou has shown in two consecutive weeks against Big 12 opponents that their defense is for real.
