"I can tell you that we remain encouraged with the progress being made against the virus and firmly believe the Tigers will kick off as scheduled this fall," Sterk said in the letter.
Sterk added, "Mizzou Athletics will be guided in its decision-making by health professionals, governmental leaders, university officials and the SEC, while keeping health, safety and well-being at the forefront throughout the process."
