The Tigers had four players - receiver T.J. Moe, left tackle Elvis Fisher, linebacker Zaviar Gooden and cornerback E.J. Gaines - named to the league's third team, but Missouri was the only school in the league not to receive a first or second team selection.
Vanderbilt was close to join Missouri in that regard - the Commodores didn't have a first teamer either - but running back Zac Stacy was named to the second team at running back.
The list is predictably dominated by annual heavy-hitters like LSU and Alabama. LSU has a league-high seven players on the first team, while Alabama has four first teamers. Both schools each had 11 players named to the team, in all, while Arkansas had the next-highest with 10.
Texas A, who bolted the Big 12 along with Missouri, had three players - receiver Ryan Swope, offensive lineman Luke Joeckel and linebacker Sean Porter - named to the league's first team.
