Traditions and Tailgating – The Homecoming Edition

Homecoming is a very special time of year at Mizzou. This week is full of special events, festivities and tradition. In this week’s traditions and tailgating, we’ll look at the homecoming queen and king tradition and then give you a couple ideas for your tailgate this Saturday.

Tradition

The tradition of homecoming royalty is one that dates back to nearly the beginning of homecoming itself. Each year, 30 candidates (15 women and 15 men) are narrowed down to the top ten. The candidates are presented at halftime of the homecoming football game and the winner is crowned in front of all the fans. Here are this year’s finalists:

Tailgating

This year’s homecoming football game has an early start time of 11:00 a.m. It’s also going to be pretty darn cold. That said, a hot breakfast is a sure bet for those die hard tailgaters. Here are a few ideas to keep the fans happy:

Sausage Rolls

Breakfast Potato and Bacon Casserole

You would be our hero if you showed up to the tailgate with this sandwich.

Apple and Cheddar Breakfast Sausage Burger

Now that you know the final homecoming royalty candidates and are ready to wow the other attendees at your tailgate, get out there and have a happy homecoming!
