The Tigers improved to 6-0 on the season and will start SEC play next Wednesday, December 30th when they host Tennessee.

Mizzou Football freshman Kicker Harrison Mevis is named to the Athletic’s Freshman All-American Team.

Mevis produced a highly impressive debut campaign in the Black & Gold, as he was successful on 17-of-20 field goals for the Tigers and a perfect 28-of-28 on PATS.
