Mizzou is No. 4!

We jumped two spaces to our highest ranking of the year, securing the No. 4 spot in the AP poll. Thankfully we didn't have to play during last weekend's jinx, which saw No. 1 USC, No. 4 Florida, and No. 9 Wisconsin all lose to unranked teams. No.3 Georgia also fell to No. 8 Alabama. Give Pinkel props for knowing when to schedule an "off" week.

The real season starts this weekend when we take on Nebraska. If we win, it will be our first W in Lincoln since 1978. If that doesn't strike fear into your heart, Nebraska is 124-14 in Lincoln over the past 21 years -- wow!
