It is Homecoming week once again and the 15th – ranked Tigers (5-1 overall, 1-1 in Big 12 action) are preparing for their showdown against the Texas Tech Red Raiders. Legend says that Homecoming traditions began at the University of Missouri in 1911, an effort led by Mizzou’s Director of Athletics Chester L. Brewer. In the spirit of returning to Ol’ Mizzou, here are some images to recap a little of the action that has happened during the first half of the season.
