COLUMBIA — The Missouri Tigers are moving to the Southeastern Conference and officially leaving the Big 12 Conference by July 1, 2012.
And Saturday's game against the Texas Longhorns, a 17-5 Missouri victory, might have been the last time the Longhorns will play football in Columbia.
Here are some Longhorn fans' responses to some questions about Missouri's decision to leave the Big 12 for the SEC.
