Dear Tiger Fans,

Your Mizzou Football team is heading to a school-record, 5th-consecutive bowl game and we need your support! We are very excited about the opportunity to play a talented Navy team in the Texas Bowl on December 31st in Houston, Texas. It’s the culmination of a hard-fought season in which we overcame adversity and we want to finish strong. My players and coaches look forward to preparing over the coming weeks to play our best game on December 31st as we seek our 9th win of the season and add to our bowl championships.

It’s very important that Mizzou fans show their support by purchasing tickets and traveling to Houston for the Texas Bowl. I have often said that we have the best fans in America and bowl season is the time when all fans are truly put to the test. Each bowl team is judged based on whether their fans purchase tickets and travel to the bowl game. That’s why I encourage you, your family and friends to travel to Houston later this month to enjoy the festivities surrounding this New Year’s Eve game.

If you are unable to attend the bowl, please consider purchasing and donating tickets to help us build up our bowl reputation. Tickets are available for as little as $25 each and we will help distribute any unused tickets to charitable groups or youth organizations.

Thanks again for your support of Mizzou Football. I look forward to seeing you in Houston.

Go Tigers!


Gary Pinkel
Head Football Coach
