Some hack: Mizzou Ranked 24th in First AP Poll

As of 12am this morning, here's what those of you that participated in our poll thought of the Tigers' ranking.


David Morrison @ The Tribune: Missouri ranked No. 24 in preseason AP poll

Missouri is one of eight SEC teams in the poll, along with No. 2 Alabama, No. 6 Auburn, No. 9 South Carolina, No. 12 Georgia, No. 13 LSU, No. 18 Ole Miss and No. 21 Texas A&M.

The Tigers host Georgia this year and travel to South Carolina and Texas A&M.

Dave Matter @ STLToday: Mizzou ranked No. 24 in AP preseason poll

This is Missouri's first appearance in the preseason AP poll since 2011, when the Tigers began the year No. 21. The Tigers just missed cracking the other major preseason poll, the Amway Coaches poll, coming in with the most ballot points among unranked teams, essentially putting them at No. 26. Neither the AP poll or coaches poll has any bearing on the new College Football Playoff postseason structure for determining the four-team playoff field.

So, what we're all saying is: nowhere to go but up!
