Week 15 (Mizzou 42 - Auburn 59)

This sure was a great looking game. My wish finally came true with Mizzou wearing their gold pants on the road again, for the first time with the new uniforms. I absolutely loved this look. Before the preview image came out last week showing the uniform put together, I wasn't sure how the pants would look with our away jerseys since there is very minimal gold on those. I was pleasantly surprised with how good it looked together. And to top it off, the standard oval tiger helmet looked great with a matte finish. I hope we wear this again next year.

SEC Championship Game Uniform

I absolutely love this look. I've been wanting them to wear the gold pants on the road since they unveiled the new uniforms last year and they finally came through. I can't be for sure, but I believe the last time Mizzou wore the gold pants on the road was in the 2010 Insight Bowl against Iowa, as seen below.

The Tigers will also be wearing a new helmet style. They have taken their standard primary helmet, and made it matte black. Not a bad look, but the glossy black part in the middle of the stripes when looking from the front bothers me. Since the whole helmet stripe is one big decal it's understandable, and just a minor gripe on an otherwise solid look. Check out the helmet below.

I can't wait to see these in action Saturday. Hopefully, we can celebrate being SEC Champions as well.

Week 14 (Texas A&M 21 - Mizzou 28)

Mizzou took care of business against the Aggies last Saturday night to secure their spot in the SEC Championship Game this coming weekend. As is the case each year, the last game of the season was Senior Night, as well as the annual Blackout Game. For the first time since the new uniforms were unveiled, Mizzou wore their alternate helmet with the black jerseys and black pants. I can't get enough of this look. All season long, there really hasn't been a bad look for the Tigers.

So, with last weekend out of the way, let's talk about the big game. According to Mizzou beat writer Dave Matter (@Dave_Matter), the fans will be able to vote on the team's uniform combination on Gary Pinkel's website during the days leading up to the game. As all fan votes are, this could either be a blessing or a curse. With Auburn being the designated home team, they will surely wear their home blues. My hope for this game is that we're able to go color on color with the Tigers from down South and wear our gold alternates with the black pants. Chances are though, that won't happen.

My gut instinct tells me the fans will vote on the black and silver alternate helmet, standard away jersey, and black pants. Still wouldn't be a bad looking game, but it wouldn't be my first choice. What do you think the fans will vote on?

And lastly, I have to share this article about the re-brand that happened across all athletics last year. Really interesting stuff. It's always good to see what goes on behind the scenes, and how much thought is put into the process. Check out the story here:

With all that said, let's go win a Championship this Saturday. MIZ!

Week 13 (Mizzou 24 - Ole Miss 10)

After their second bye week of the season, Mizzou came out needing a win to keep their hopes for an SEC East Championship alive. They took care of business in Oxford wearing their black helmets, white jerseys, and white pants.This weekend is Senior Night in Columbia, as well as the annual Blackout Game, so I wouldn't expect Mizzou to wear anything but their standard black/black/black set. Pictures from last weekend are below.

Week 11 (Mizzou 48 - Kentucky 17)

Another road win for Mizzou taking it to Kentucky. They went with their standard road uniforms again, so nothing new to report. Pictures below.

Week 10 (Tennessee 3 - Mizzou 31)

Great looking match up last weekend between the Volunteers and Tigers. I love these looks from both teams. This needs to be Mizzou's standard home look, with the all black and alternate gold tops reserved for minimal use.

Week 9 (S. Carolina 27 - Mizzou 24 OT)

Heartbreaking loss for the Tigers over the weekend. Even worse when you were watching it in person on the hill. Oh well, you win some, you lose some. They did look pretty good though, uni wise. They brought out the new matte black & silver helmets debuted earlier in the season, along with the anthracite top, and black pants. Pretty solid look overall. Check out the picture below.

Week 8 (Mizzou 36 - Florida 17)

Mizzou went with their awesome gold tops this past weekend while cruising past Florida to stay unbeaten on the year, and earn a top five BCS ranking. This is exactly what the team needed after a disappointing season last year. As I've said before, this is my favorite look from the Tigers. The gold jerseys are perfect, and the matte black helmet fits really well with the whole uniform. All in all, it was a great looking match-up for both teams.

I Love Gooooold

Gold Rush this weekend at home against Florida. This was my favorite look for the Tigers last year, and continues to be this year. Matte black helmet with gold tiger logo, gold jerseys, and black pants. As you can see, the Pinktober bug has bitten the team as well. This was taken directly from, describing the pink accessories:

"The players will be wearing pink Nike socks, gloves and sweatbands. On the sweatbands, Nike has stitched the words “dedicated to” in order to take the tribute one step further. This is where players can write the name of a loved one. There is also a pink ribbon, the international symbol of breast cancer awareness, on the back of the helmet."

One thing I'd like to see them do eventually is wear the gold pants with this set to make it a true Gold Rush. I've never seen that mocked up before, but I have a feeling it would look pretty awesome. Either that, or the players would look like giant mustard bottles on the field. Either way, make it happen Mizzou.

Week 7 (Mizzou 41 - Georgia 26)

Big upset win last weekend in Athens that showed how talented this Mizzou team actually is. As shown earlier last week, the gameday uniform was black/white/black, and it didn't look too bad in action. Definitely a lot better than the mock up showed. Check out the pictures below.

Gameday Uniform 10/12

Mizzou will stay pretty vanilla on the road again this weekend at Georgia. The uniform is a mirror image of last weekend's, but black pants are taking the place of the anthracite. I don't think the black pants mesh well with this set since the jersey is primarily white and anthracite, but it's a moot point if they continue to play well on the field. Huge game for the Tigers this weekend.

Week 6 (Mizzou 51 - Vanderbilt 28)

A little late getting to the post from last weekend so I apologize. Not much to report on however, as Mizzou went with one of their standard road looks in the black/white/anthracite combo. Pretty decent look, but the away jerseys remain my least favorite part of the new identity introduced last season. Game pics below.

Week 5 (Arkansas State 19 - Mizzou 41)

As shown earlier in the week, Mizzou went with the classic black/black/black combo they have been wearing for years. It's my second favorite look of theirs, barely getting beat by the black/black/yellow combo. Check out the pictures below.

Back in Black

Pretty uneventful on the uniform side this weekend as Mizzou will be wearing their standard black/black/black home combination they wore in Week 1. I was really hoping for the gold jerseys, or possibly the matte black and gold "Super Tiger" helmet, but we'll most likely see those in Week 8 against Florida for the annual Gold Rush game. Check back this weekend for the game day pictures.
