Missouri Tigers

About Missouri Tigers

The Missouri Tigers have been active in college football since 1890 and represent the University of Missouri. The team have won a number of titles throughout history and have produced 12 consensus All-Americans. The Tigers are also notable for the fact that they have played in more overtime college football games than any other team in the country. Their main rivals include the Kansas Jayhawks, the Iowa State Cyclones, the Nebraska Cornhuskers and the Illinois Fighting Illini. 

To date, the Tigers have been selected as National Champions on two occasions by non-consensus polls. In the 1960 season, during Dan Devine's time as head coach, they achieved an 11-0 record and were selected as champions by the Poling System, while in 2007, during Gary Pinkel's tenure as coach, they were selected by Anderson & Hester after achieving a 12-2 record over the season. At present, Missouri do not claim either of these seasons as National Championship-winning years.

The team have won a total of 15 Conference Championships, as well as three Big 12 North Division Titles. The Tigers have also made appearances in 29 post-season bowl games and currently hold a 13-16 record. Their most recent appearance was a win over the North Carolina Tar Heels in the 2011 Independence Bowl.

Amongst the list of All-Americans to come through the Tigers program are Paul Christman, Bob Steuber, Johnny Roland, Roger Wehrli and Kellen Winslow. Each of them have had their numbers retired by the team. In recent years, notable players have included Jeremy Maclin, Chase Coffman and Michael Egnew, who have all gone on to play in the NFL.

Missouri's home games have been played at Faurot Field at Memorial Stadiu...
