Test Your Knowledge on Mizzou Football

On New Year's Day, the Mizzou Tigers and the Minnesota Golden Gophers will battle for Citrus Bowl supremacy! A win for the Tigers would break the school record for most wins in a 2-year period and would make the 2014 team only the 4th in MU history to win at least 11 games.
