Last Chance at Texas

Missouri hopes wide receiver Darius White’s return bolsters passing attack | Tod Palmer

Missouri senior wide receiver Darius White missed four of the last five games with leg injuries, but he is expected to play (and potentially be a difference-maker) Saturday at Texas A&M.

Shane Ray wants to expand his single-season sack record at Missouri | Tod Palmer

Ray, who also heard congratulations from former Tigers defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson, now has three games remaining in the regular season plus a bowl game and possibly even a return to the SEC Championship Game to put the record at a nearly unreachable place.

Preview: Mizzou vs. Texas A&M |

The bizarre scheduling pattern has been a blessing in disguise for many members of the Mizzou Football Family, as 24 current Tigers call the Lone Star State home. Mizzou has made a concerted effort to recruit players from the state of Texas, shown by the fact that it is the second-most represented state on the Mizzou roster, behind only Missouri. - Last chance in Texas?

Any game in Texas means a little bit more to Missouri's Texan players -- 21 on the roster -- but this particular game against the Aggies means a bit more to White, with his experience at Texas A&M's former biggest rival. - Off the Edge with Brad Madison

If I had to pick my favorite place to play a road game at, it might be impossible to narrow it down to one. I do know that Kyle Field at Texas A&M would be in the conversation though.

Connor McGovern, Missouri football's strongest player, carries the weight of two - Columbia Missourian

Although he'll never know how good a football player he could have been, Keith McGovern got to experience the sport through his brother, who played fullback at Northeast Missouri (now Truman State) and, later, his son.

Chiefs use "secret weapon" to land Mizzou-BYU matchup at Arrowhead in 2015.

Kansas City Chiefs president Mark Donovan called head coach Andy Reid the "secret weapon," in getting BYU to commit to playing a football game at Arrowhead Stadium against the Missouri Tigers in on November 14, 2015.  The Tigers will then travel to Provo, UT for a road game in 2020.  Reid played football at BYU with current A.D.

Mizzou in the Pros, Gack edition

Gachkar becomes a linebacker for Bolts |

"He made me excited in the fourth quarter," Rivers said of Gachkar. "There wasn’t much that was gonna get me excited at that point, but watching him got me excited. He’s flying around making plays . . . In the most difficult environment, in the toughest circumstance you can be in, he was absolutely playing his heart out. It didn’t matter we were getting killed. He was like, ‘I get to play NFL linebacker.’ It fired me up."

Squeaky Bouncy Hoops TONIGHT!

Freshmen get shot to step up for Mizzou : Dave Matter

As for the other rookies, the staff envisions 6-8 forward Jakeenan Gant as a skilled power forward, but at just 207 pounds, he’ll need some muscle to become a force in the paint. Guard Tramaine Isabell hasn’t been shy about shooting — only sophomore guard Wes Clark has taken more shots than Isabell’s 19 — but he’s shown flashes of being a floor leader with scoring ability. Shooting guard Namon Wright played well late against William Jewell on Oct. 29 but was the last player off the bench against UMSL.
