The Missouri football team's regular season is over, and now it's time for the bowl season.
The Tigers will miss out on a BCS bowl again this season, despite a 10-2 record. And with Texas A&M leapfrogging the Tigers and accepting a bid to the Cotton Bowl, Missouri's impressive season might not end with an impressive bowl bid.
The Tigers are still in the running to go to the Alamo Bowl, Insight Bowl and Holiday Bowl.
Bowl game attendance problems are the cloud hanging over the Missouri football team come bowl season. Earned or not, Tigers fans have a reputation that they do not travel. It could be the reason that the Aggies, whose fans sold out their share of Cotton Bowl tickets in one day, jumped the Tigers, despite the fact that Texas A&M has a worse record and lost to Missouri this season.
It's the Catch-22 bowl — the Tigers will likely be passed over by the best bowls because of attendance concerns, but the sub-par bowls the Tigers do make are not attractive enough for large numbers of Tiger fans to make the trip.
The Tigers will announce what bowl bid they have accepted on Sunday night, and chances are high the Holiday Bowl, which pits the "No. 5" (the fifth selected) team in the Big 12 against the Pac 10's No. 3 team, will host the Tigers Dec. 30.
Regardless of which bowl bid the Tigers accept, will you attend the game?
