Before last week, anyway. Missouri (5-1) had been on track to possibly claim the No. 1 spot before its loss at home to Oklahoma State and Daniel had 15 touchdown passes and only one interception. The Tigers plummeted eight spots in the poll, while Daniel faltered in his first big test this season much as he did last year in a pair of losses to Oklahoma.
But the loss does not have to be devastating for the Tigers, still very much alive in the Big 12 North. A big rebound from Daniel can help put the Tigers back on track.
"You look at all the so-called title contenders, and we're right outside the Top 10," Daniel said. "At the end of the year it means something.
"What we can do is go back and fix all the mistakes, because we know we have a huge, huge test ahead of us."
