University of Missouri homecoming celebrations underway

Faurot Field Entrance 10-17


The University of Missouri's reimagined homecoming celebrations are underway and will last through October.

The typical week-long celebration was extended after the Tiger's homecoming game against Vanderbilt was postponed over concerns with COVID-19 in the Vanderbilt program.

The Tigers will play the homecoming game on Oct. 31 against Kentucky which is when MU will crown its homecoming royalty.

Despite the game's postponement, the university kicked off reimagined homecoming celebrations with a virtual spirit rally and Decorate the District on Thursday.

This past Friday MU celebrated its 2020 Hall of Fame honorees virtually.

For the rest of the month, MU is encouraging the campus community to decorate their homes and safely hold driveway tailgates on gameday.

Mizzou said it looks forward to reintroducing its classic homecoming events in 2021.
