Tradition and Tailgate: The Final Game


One of Mizzou’s Pride Points is to Wear Gold, but once a year it’s blackout time.

For November 30th game against the Texas A&M Aggies, fans will be decked out in all black to cheer on their Tigers on Senior Night. Kickoff will be at 6:45 p.m. and the game will be broadcast on ESPN. After the game, keep your eyes open for another Mizzou tradition: each senior football player taking their own white rock from the Big M in the North Endzone.


We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that the final game of the season is just two short days after Thanksgiving. They may not be traditional tailgating food, but Thanksgiving leftovers seem just too delicious to leave at home. Here are a few recipes that will celebrate both the holiday and football.
