The Missouri Tigers football program takes its name from a citizen brigade formed during the Civil War to protect the citizens of Columbia, Missouri Tigers from roving bands of plunderers. Missouri football takes this legacy seriously. One of only 39 teams in all college football to win more than 500 games, winning 12 conference championships, fielding 23 All-Americans and 11 members of the College Football Hall of Fame, the Tigers are one of most storied, yet underestimated, football programs in the country.

2013 Mizzou Season Preview
Missouri learned the hard way that the SEC is not the same as any other college football conference. After consistently winning eight games or more for the last several years, the Tigers win total dropped to five in 2012 with only two conference wins in their rookie season in the SEC. With Gary Pinkel entering his 13th season as the head coach, the Tigers are hopeful that year two will go more smoothly. James Franklin returns for his last season as the quarterback of the Tigers. Like most of the Tigers, Franklin had a disappointing 2012, but it was only two years ago that the dual-threat QB totaled 36 touchdowns. Missouri has a group of very talented and tall receivers for Franklin to throw to and the group is led by senior Marcus Lucas and sophomore Dorial Green-Beckham. The Tigers second season in the SEC will be highlighted with home games against Florida, South Carolina, and Texas A&M.

Mizzou Tigers Football at Faurot Field Address: 500 East Stadium Boulevard Columbia, Missouri, 65211
The Missouri Tigers play their home games at Faurot Field, also known as Memorial Stadium or the Zou in Columbia, Missouri. The stadium can hold more than 70,000 spectators. Its most well recognized feature is the white “M” made of stones behind the endzones. Visiting schools have traditionally tried to change the letter to an “N” for Nebraska or a “K” for Kansas. A Mizzou Tigers home game this season will be an unforgettable experience. The Missouri Tigers home bench is on the Faurot Field sideline with sections AA-TT. Faurot Field parking information is covered in our Tigers event guide.
Missouri vs. Kansas
The rivalry game between the Jayhawks and Tigers is known as the Border War, and thus it’s played in Kansas City, which is carved in half at the Kansas and Missouri state line. Both of these schools and their fans can’t stand losing against the other, and for a while they won’t have the opportunity as Mizzou bolted for the SEC.
Missouri in the BCS National Championship, Bowl Games, and SEC Championship
After 15 years in the Big 12 the Tigers made the move to the powerhouse SEC in 2012 and are already making noise. With close to 30-bowl game appearances and 15 conference titles the Missouri Tigers certainly have the pedigree to compete in the SEC. Ticketcity offers tickets to all college football bowl games and the SEC Championship Game.

Ticket City/ MU-Florida Ticket City was awsome and came through when one of my friends lost his ticket. They were teriffic to work with and I will use them for future ticket purchases. What a day in the Zou. Mauk looked like a seasoned QB instead of a redshirt Freshman and the Tigers romped. Now they have to get ready for South Carolina. October 21, 2013
