Tiger fans, are you ready for game day?!

The Mizzou Tigers kick off Saturday, December 12 at 11 a.m. against the Georgia Bulldogs in their final home game of the 2020 season.


The 2020 football season looks different than anything we’ve seen in years past. Mizzou Athletics is diligently working with University leadership, the Southeastern Conference, NCAA, and with the advisement of public health officials on developing a plan for a safe return to intercollegiate athletics competition this fall. Capacity limits, cashless payments, face coverings and digital ticketing are just a few ways things have changed. For a comprehensive list of 2020 fan guidelines, please visit
