The Mizzou Tiger fans here in Columbia, MO (you can call us CoMo) are thrilled to welcome fans from the other Columbia to our city for a football showdown the weekend of October 20. We know your main goal is to watch the action on the field,  but we have a lot to explore when you're not cheering on your Gamecocks.

Guide to Game Day

University of Missouri's football game against South Carolina at Memorial Stadium/Faurot Field will kick off at 2:30 p.m. CT on the SEC Network. This weekend is Homecoming at Mizzou, and since CoMo is where the homecoming tradition was born, you can enjoy additional activities like the Decorate the District Community Stroll, the Campus Decorations event (this year’s theme is children’s books!) and the Homecoming Parade.  

Here are a few helpful links to make your game day complete:

-Memorial Stadium A-Z

-Parking and Transportation


Things To Do

Take the time to explore our vibrant downtown. Known as The District and adjacent to Mizzou’s campus, it’s perfect for grabbing a drink or a meal, shopping, viewing public art and just enjoying the game day atmosphere. 

Get outside and check out some of CoMo’s green spaces. Spots like Stephens Lake Park and Rock Bridge Memorial State Park are gorgeous in the fall and provide great hiking and leisure options. Up for a challenge? Check out the MKT Trail, which links up nine miles south of Columbia with the statewide Katy Trail, the nation’s largest rails-to-trails project. 

Dine al fresco on one of Columbia’s picturesque patios. Local favorite Flat Branch has a popular patio nestled under trees in The District. Take in the view from the rooftop spots at Harpo’s, the Heidelberg, Campus Bar & Grill and The Roof. Or escape downtown and enjoy the patios at Sophia’s, Shakespeare’s South or Addison’s South
