Missouri Tigers Up to 7th in Coaches Poll, 5th in AP


Two weeks ago the Missouri Tigers were not ranked in either the coaches or Associated Press poll. Now they are a top 5 team.

While the coaches disagree about the top five part both polls confirmed Missouri is a top 10, a meteoric rise from being ranked 25th in the AP poll two weeks ago. Not a bad job from Gary Pinkel, who some thought was on the hot seat coming into the season.

Missouri will play South Carolina at home on Saturday.
