Missouri is one win away from its first Southeastern Conference Championship. But the Tigers National Championship hopes may need some help.
The Tigers stayed at No. 5 in the Bowl Championship Series poll following its SEC Eastern Division clinching victory Saturday over Texas A&M. Mizzou averages that same ranking in both the human polls and the computer polls.
Florida State moved up to No. 1 following Alabama's loss to Auburn. Ohio State moved from No. 3 to No. 2. Auburn and Alabama follow them.
Missouri will play No. 3 Auburn Saturday evening in Atlanta for the SEC Championship. It would be Mizzou's first BCS berth.
