The polls are based on mostly who plays the big teams/comference and beats them. Texas A & M was an unranked team and losing to them had to hurt Mizzou. The conference they are in Big 12, has only two good teams Texas and Oklahoma who are not even in their division. So winning is not the only criteria to make a mark. They must win big to get any type of recognition by the coaches, journalists and computers.
