COLUMBIA — The athletics department at MU will hold the annual X's and O's Clinic on Aug. 25 at Memorial Stadium in the LeMone Tiger Lounge.

Christie Leigh Mueller, who wrote "Gridiron Belles: A Guide to Saturdays in Dixie," will talk about tailgating in the SEC. Dave Matter will be selling and signing copies of his new book, "The Mizzou Fan's Survival Guide to the SEC." The book costs $17.

Registration costs $40 and begins at 9:30 a.m. The program starts at 11 a.m. Registration includes food, beverage and a gift. Mizzou Women's Connection members get complimentary admission to the clinic.
