COLUMBIA, Mo. — Missouri’s first athletic season in the SEC was a difficult one, but the Tigers fared much better in the classroom.
The NCAA released its annual Academic Progress Rates (APR), showing that Mizzou led the SEC in four different sports. Football (982), men’s swimming and diving (993), women’s swimming and diving (1000), and gymnastics (1000) all posted SEC-best APR rates.
