The speculation is over, rooms are available, and tickets are on sale.
For the first time since 1998, MU football fans can make travel plans to watch the Tigers play in the postseason. Ed Stewart, MU’s associate athletic director, announced Sunday that the Tigers will play Arkansas in the Independence Bowl at 6:30 p.m. Dec. 31 in Shreveport, La. The game will be televised on ESPN.
“This is an incredible time, and this is especially exciting for our kids,” Stewart said.
Tickets went on sale at 5 p.m. Sunday and cost $35 for sideline seats and $25 for end zone seats.
Tickets will be distributed based on donor priority through the Tiger Scholarship Fund. The Independence Bowl will release 2,000 hotel rooms at 8 a.m. today for Missouri fans looking for lodging in Shreveport.
Travel packages are also available through the Alumni Association. The packages include a game ticket, travel and two nights in a Shreveport hotel.
