Tigers football fans, many sheathed in gold plastic to stave off an intermittent Columbia drizzle, numbered 30,117 for the annual Black and Gold Game Saturday at Memorial Stadium. The “Tiger 2” team, composed of reserve players, defeated the “Mizzou 1” starters 17-10, although the reserves had the benefit of a 14 point cushion to start the contest.
The scrimmage marks the end of the spring practice period and gives players, such as redshirt sophomore quarterback Eddie Printz, a chance to see game-like action before the long layoff. Starting redshirt junior quarterback Maty Mauk finished 9 of 14, passing for 68 yards and a feathery touchdown toss on a fade route to redshirt sophomore wideout J’Mon Moore at the end of the first half. Senior tailback Russell Hansbrough led the running backs with 36 yards rushing.
This year’s event included a pregame Fan Fest between Memorial Stadium and the Hearnes Center, with carnival rides, the Mizzou helmet car, the Truman’s Taxi fire truck and live music by the local band Dr. Zhivegas.
The Black and Gold Game also raises money and canned goods for the Food Bank of Central and Northeast Missouri, which hauled in $2,500 and thousands of pounds of food.
