MU is bowl-bound

Mizzou is going bowling for a record fifth-consecutive season, facing off against Navy in Houston on Dec. 31. The Tigers (8-4) play the Midshipmen (8-4 with a game against Army remaining) at 2:30 p.m. at Reliant Stadium, home of the NFL’s Houston Texans. The game — a rematch of the 1961 Orange Bowl, which the Tigers won 21-14 — will air nationally on ESPN.

This is the sixth bowl in seven seasons under coach Gary Pinkel, and the six appearances tie College Football Hall of Fame coach Dan Devine’s record for Mizzou bowl appearances.

Tiger fans are invited to join the Mizzou Alumni Association on the official Texas Bowl Tour Dec. 30 to Jan. 1. Fans can even stay at the team hotel and take part in the alumni association’s pregame tailgate. Call 888-MIZZZOU-1 for details. If you need only tickets, call 800-CAT-PAWS.
