Both teams come into this game 6-0.  Both teams come into this game ranked.  But Oklahoma is not just ranked number 3 nationally on the AP poll, they also sit atop the newly released BCS Standings.

Oklahoma’s wins have not been pretty.  The victories were narrow in four of their first five games before coming back from a bye week to annihilate Iowa State by a score of 52-0. 

Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops played down the hype.

"We're going up to play a 6-0 team at Missouri, and they're not handing anything out right now," Stoops said. "It means absolutely nothing."

Missouri is likely to provide the Sooners with their toughest challenge of the season to date.  The Tigers are allowing on average 13.3 points per game and are tied for the sixth-most sacks with 20.
