Mizzou back in AP poll at No. 24

Mizzou back in AP poll at No. 24


COLUMBIA, Mo. • For just the fourth time since 1979 Missouri toppled a top-15 team on the road, and the Tigers’ reward was a re-entry into the AP poll. After Saturday’s come-from-behind 21-20 victory at No. 13 South Carolina, Missouri is No. 24 in the newest poll

The Tigers (4-1, 1-0 SEC) were No. 18 before losing to Indiana on Sept. 20 and fell out of last week’s poll. South Carolina (3-2, 2-2) slipped out of the top 25 this week and is the second-leading vote-getter among unranked teams.

Missouri checked in as the leading vote-getter among unranked teams in the Amway Coaches Poll. 

Among 60 AP voters, the Tigers are as high as No. 16 on two ballots and appeared on 35 ballots overall, according to the website Twenty-five AP voters left Mizzou off their ballots. 

Missouri has a bye this week and resumes play Oct. 11 against No. 13 Georgia at home. The kickoff time and TV information for that game should be announced Monday by the league office. Other SEC games that day include No. 15 LSU at Florida, No. 11 Ole Miss at No. 6 Texas A&M, No. 5 Auburn at No. 12 Mississippi State and No. 3 Alabama at Arkansas.
