Missouri will represent the Big 12 for the last time in this years Independence Bowl while UNC looks to close a dark chapter in their programs history. This game features two good defensive teams and some explosive offensive players highlighted by UNC recceiver Dwight Jones. Jones along with his defensive teammates Quinton Coples and Zach Brown all figure to be drafted high. Brown in particular will have a tough time corralling senior tight end Michael Egnew, the Tigers most notable draft eligible offensive player...

Word is trickling out of Shreveport, Louisiana where bowl week officially kicks off in two hours and either Missouri or North Carolina will walk away with this broken trophy. Media types on the ground say that the Missouri mascot, Truman, has broken the trophy. @HarryPlumer is a Mizzou beat writer: Asked Truman if he broke the trophy. He nodded. Asked him what happened. Threw his...
During the Independence Bowl, an insane catch was made by a Mizzou Tiger Cornerback. The ball actually landed on the back of the UNC Tarheel Wide Receiver and stayed there motionless until another Tiger player was able to snag it. I challenge you to find a better interception than that.
The Missouri Tigers defeated the North Carolina Tarheels in the Independence Bowl by the score of 42-24.

Independence Bowl? DON’T CARE! Right? Two 7-5 teams in a December 26th bowl game- WHO CARES? The attendance at the game said. But a Missouri Tigers Cornerback made the best. interception. ever. The ball actually landed on the back of the UNC Tarheels Wide Receiver and floated around and bounced here and bounced there. You just need to watch it- after the jump.

After narrowly falling to the eighth ranked Missouri Tigers in the annual "Braggin' Rights" game played in St. Louis, Illinois head coach had to feel pretty good about how his young team fought back in a hostile environment against a Top 10 opponent.
Weber knew his young team played hard, but a loss to Mizzou always hurts, no matter the circumstances.
The official schedule hasn’t been released (or maybe it has depending on when you’re reading this), but one thing is apparent – the Florida Gators will meet both the Texas A&M Aggies and Missouri Tigers on the gridiron in 2012.
