COLUMBIA — This week, Missourian photographers took photos of the festivities surrounding Missouri's first football game on Saturday and protests by fast food workers seeking higher wages. 

In this photo by Kevin Cook, Stephens College soccer goalie Heather Battenfield awaits shots from her teammates during a practice Tuesday at Stephens Lake Park. After not scoring in any of its eight games last season, the team was hopeful for the 2013 season, which kicked off on Friday.
