You can tell it's BCS season. Mizzou was ranked No. 11 headed into the week and Oklahoma home was at No. 1. So Mizzou gets the win, how far do they jump?
It sounds like the majority of folks are predicting sixth for Mizzou. ESPN's Brad Edwards predicts sixth for Mizzou as does Ben Prather of SBNation.com.
A jump from 11th to sixth is what happens when you beat the then-number one team. With a future schedule that includes Nebraska and a possible Big 12 Championship Game, the Tigers have some room left to move up the standings.
Alabama can pass them and Oklahoma could earn an opportunity for redemption.
Good point that the Tigers have room to grow going forward. Their next two games include road trips to Nebraska and Texas Tech.
