ESPN released its SEC Takeover schedule for later in July. You’ll have to wait a while for Missouri’s — the Tigers’ day is the second to last: July 29.

That said, it might be worth the wait. Here are three things we know will be a part of it, either through the release above or the MUtigers twitter account:

  • Missouri’s 1994 Sweet 16 win over Syracuse, one that sent the Tigers into the Elite Eight for the first time since the 1970s.
  • A documentary about the 1997 Mizzou Football team, which ended a more than decade-long bowl drought. It will air at 11:30 pm CT on July 28 and 5:30 pm CT on July 29.
  • A documentary about the 2007 Mizzou Football team, the first Tiger team in 47 years to reach No. 1 in the polls. It will air at 6:00 pm CT on July 29.

MUtigers.com has more information, both about the documentaries and the overall takeover:

Mizzou Athletics is set to air anniversary documentaries of the historic 1997 and 2007 Mizzou Football season during its SEC Network Takeover on July 29. Mizzou Network has spent the last several months gathering exclusive interviews with key members from both the 1997 and 2007 teams for a pair of separate documentaries. Each documentary features highlights and in-depth insights as members of each team take a trip down memory lane to relive two of the most historic Mizzou Football seasons in memory. [...]

Mizzou's SEC Network Takeover day will feature 24 hours of Mizzou Athletics content, including memorable and historic games, packages and hours of originally-produced content from Mizzou Network. The takeover begins at 11 p.m. (CT) on July 28 and goes for 24 hours on SEC Network. Set your DVR now as both of these documentaries are can't-miss television for Mizzou fans.
