Sleep was impossible for Gary Pinkel after perhaps the biggest victory in Missouri history.

Not because the euphoria refused to subside after the Tigers knocked off Oklahoma, No. 1 in the BCS and No. 3 in the poll. Because he was already fretting about next week — a trip to No. 14 Nebraska.

The Tigers are 7-0 for the first time in 50 years and rising quickly in national stature at No. 7 in the poll and No. 6 in the BCS rankings.

Next up are the Huskers, a giant and a giant-killer with a long and rugged history against Missouri.
