The Tigers were rewarded for a one-point win over a thoroughly mediocre Missouri squad on the road, but, also to their credit, a solid demolition of a good Oklahoma team at home.
There was plenty of churn in the top 25. The UCLA Bruins responded directly to my claim last week they are overrated by trouncing the Arizona Wildcats and Stanford Cardinal at home, rising four spots to No. 3.

Kansas, the previous No. 5 team, dropped down to No. 10.
