Tigers roar louder

Mizzou has strong ties to Texas, and the Cotton Bowl presents the perfect opportunity to hear our roar. With heavy alumni presence and hundreds of Texans currently enrolled, Mizzou is deeply invested in the Lone Star State. Here’s what you need to know about the University of Missouri:

  • 595 current Mizzou students are from Texas
  • 13,800 Mizzou alumni live in Texas
  • It's only 583 miles from Dallas to Mizzou (about a 9 hour drive)


The Tigers are taking over the Dallas-Fort Worth area in celebration of the Cotton Bowl. Fans can see Mizzou-themed installations, Marching Mizzou and more before the game. See our interactive map to locate Mizzou-themed spots.
