The Missouri Tigers football program represents the University of Missouri in college football and competes in the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). Since 2012, Missouri has been a member of the Southeastern Conference (SEC)[2] and is currently aligned in its Eastern Division. Home games are played at Faurot Field ("The Zou") in Columbia, Missouri.

Missouri's football program dates back to 1890, and has appeared in 31 bowl games (including 10 major bowl appearances: 4 Orange Bowls, 3 Cotton Bowls, 2 Sugar Bowls, and 1 Fiesta Bowl). Missouri has won 15 conference titles, 5 division titles, and has 2 national championship selections recognized by the NCAA.[3] Entering the 2017 season, Missouri's all-time record is 672-549-53 (.548).

The team was coached by Gary Pinkel (2001-2015), who is the winningest coach of all-time at Missouri (setting that mark with his 102nd win at the AT&T Cotton Bowl on January 3, 2014).[4] Pinkel's record with Mizzou after his final game on Nov. 27, 2015, is 118-73 (.618).

Non-consensus National Championships

Due to the lack of an NCAA-sanctioned Football Bowl Subdivision national championship, third parties including the Bowl Championship Series, Associated Press, United Press International, and USA Today have often crowned a champion following either the end of the regular season or following the bowl games for that season. The NCAA historically has not endorsed a specific system or champion, but lists several polls or mathematical selectors as "Consensus National Champions" in their NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision Records[7] guide.

The Tigers have been declared champions twice by non-consensus polls. Neither of these national championships are officially claimed by Missouri.

Season Coach Selectors Record
1960 Dan Devine Poling System (non-consensus)[7][8] 11-0*
2007 Gary Pinkel Anderson & Hester (non-consensus)[8] 12-2

* The 1960 record was officially recorded as 10-1, but was later changed to 11-0 due to Kansas' subsequent forfeit.[9]

Bowl games

Missouri has appeared in 31 bowl games, including 10 major bowl appearances: 4 Orange Bowls, 3 Cotton Bowls, 2 Sugar Bowls, and 1 Fiesta Bowl, with an all-time bowl record of 15-16.

Pro Football Hall of Fame

Two Missouri players have been enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame:

Nickname

The nickname "Tigers", given to Mizzou's athletic teams, traces its origin to the Civil War period. At that time, plundering guerrilla bands habitually raided small towns, and Columbia people constantly feared an attack. Such organizations as temporary "home guards" and vigilance companies banded together to fight off any possible forays.

The town's preparedness discouraged any guerrilla activity and the protecting organization began to disband in 1864. However, it was rumored that a guerrilla band, led by the notorious Bill Anderson, intended to sack the town. Quickly organized was an armed guard of Columbia citizens, who built a blockhouse and fortified the old courthouse in the center of town. This company was called "The Missouri Tigers." The marauders never came. The reputation of the intrepid "Tigers" presumably traveled abroad, and Anderson's gang detoured around Columbia.[19]

The Tigers militia unit was commanded by James Rollins, upon whom the MU's Board of Curators later bestowed the title of "Pater Universitatis Missouriensis" (Father of the University of Missouri) in recognition of his "great efforts to promote the posterity, usefulness, and success" of the University.[20]

When the MU football team was first formed in 1890, at a mass meeting of students and interested citizens held to perfect the organization of the team, "Tigers" was unanimously selected as the team name, in recognition of Rollins and the town's civil war defenders.[21][22]

Mascot

Truman the Tiger was introduced as the school's mascot against the Utah State Aggies in 1986, receiving his name from former president Harry S Truman. Truman has been named the "Nation's Best Mascot" three times since 1986, most recently in 2004.[by whom?]

Homecoming

See 1911 Kansas vs. Missouri football game

The NCAA[23] as well as Jeopardy! and Trivial Pursuit[24] recognize the University of Missouri as the birthplace of Homecoming, an event which became a national tradition in college football. The history of the University of Missouri Homecoming can be traced back to the 1911 Kansas vs. Missouri football game, when the Missouri Tigers faced off against the Kansas Jayhawks in the first installment of the Border War rivalry series.[25][26]
