COLUMBIA — Football players aren't the only ones who are busy on game day. During each home game, members of the cheer squad and Marching Mizzou work hard to pump up the team and crowd.  Other Tigers chose to celebrate MU's game against San Diego State Saturday with themed tailgates and body paint.

Marching Mizzou heads over to Faurot Field from the Hearnes Center, where they warm-up, before MU's football game against San Diego State on Saturday. Marching Mizzou has to arrive one hour before the game starts so that they can play during the opening ceremonies.
