Zach Gass of Lubbock, Texas, closes his eyes and tries to sit still while having his face painted with Missouri's colors before Monday's Alamo Bowl. Gass and his family are not Tigers fans, but said they wanted to watch a Big 12 COnference team play in a bowl game.

All the traditions of a bowl game were present before the start of Monday's Alamo Bowl between Missouri and Northwestern.
