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.

2016 Mizzou Season Preview
Missouri proved that they are an SEC West power last season, winning their 2nd straight division title. The Tigers come into 2015 with expectations of a 3rd straight division crown. Missouri will rely heavily on junior Maty Mauk who is now one of the most experiences quarterbacks in the SEC. Mauk will be surrounded by a senior cast, including running back Russell Hansbrough who could be the best back in the SEC West. The biggest question mark for the 2015 Missouri Tigers will be on the defensive line. Missouri has benefited from outstanding defensive line play over the last two seasons, but will have to rely on multiple underclassman in 2015. If they can fill in the holes, Missouri should be in the hunt for yet another SEC West title. Top games on the 2015 Missouri Tigers schedule are at home against South Carolina, Florida, and Tennessee.
