Missouri football is ranked in the Associated Press Top 25 poll for the first time this season.

Missouri (8-4) was listed at No. 24, the eighth Southeastern Conference team listed in this week's AP Top 25. The last time the Tigers made an appearance in the AP Top 25 was Week 4 of 2015.

Northwestern fell out of the AP poll from 21 after falling to Ohio State 45-24 in the Big Ten title game on Saturday.

The Tigers also moved up one spot to No. 23 in the final College Football Playoff rankings. Last Tuesday, they entered the College Football Playoff rankings at No. 24. It was the first time they were ranked in a major Top-25 poll this season.

The top six teams in the playoff rankings were announced Sunday morning: Alabama held the No. 1 slot followed by Clemson, Notre Dame and Oklahoma. Georgia and Ohio State came in at 5 and 6, respectively.

Later Sunday evening, the Tigers will find out where they're headed for the postseason. It will be the second consecutive year that Missouri will finish its season with a bowl game appearance.

Missouri finished the regular season Nov. 23 with a 38-0 win over Arkansas, bringing the Tigers to 8-4 (4-4 in the SEC) for the season.
