NEW YORK — Missouri made the largest jump in The Associated Press college football poll. 

The Tigers are ranked No. 7, moving up 11 spots after beating previously undefeated Oklahoma 36-27. The Sooners dropped eight spots to No. 11.

In the USA Today Coaches' Poll, Missouri is ranked No. 8. The Tigers did not receive first-place votes in either poll. The BCS standings will be released Sunday night on ESPN. 

Missouri was last ranked this highly in 2007, when the Tigers reached No. 1 and finished the season No. 4.

Auburn has jumped two spots to No. 3 behind top-ranked Oregon and Boise State.

TCU is No. 4, Michigan State is fifth and Alabama is No. 6.

No. 25 Baylor (6-2) is ranked for the first time since Sept. 5, 1993, when the Bears were No. 24 for a week.
