Tiger fans, are you ready for game day!?

The Mizzou Tigers kick off Saturday, November 28 at 11 a.m. against the Vanderbilt Commodores.

*Mizzou was originally scheduled to play the Arkansas Razorbacks on this date, but due to COVID-19 and a combination of positive tests, contact tracing and quarantining of individuals within the Arkansas football program, their meetup is postponed.


Mizzou fans looking to attend the game should use their ‘Game 2’ tickets and ‘Game 2’ parking passes, and save their ‘Game 5’ tickets and parking for the Arkansas game when it is officially rescheduled.


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
