Sept. 2 Opener with Missouri State at 11 a.m.; Week Three with Purdue at 3 p.m.

The much-anticipated 2017 Mizzou Football season is fast approaching, and Tiger fans can now finalize their plans to watch the early-season action, as game times have been established for the first three weeks by the Southeastern Conference and its television partners.

Mizzou will begin year two of the Coach Barry Odom era with an 11 a.m. (central time) kick against Missouri State and former longtime MU assistant Dave Steckel on Sept. 2, with the game televised on the SEC Network. That will mark the first in a rare four-straight home game stretch for the Tigers, who will play all four September contests in the friendly confines of Memorial Stadium/Faurot Field. Game two on Sept. 9 against South Carolina had previously been established as a 6 p.m. kick on ESPN2.

Week three will see Mizzou step out of conference again, as it hosts the Purdue Boilermakers, with kickoff set for 3 p.m. on Sept. 16. This game will be televised on the SEC Network. All remaining games will have kick time and TV information selected two weeks in advance – with the exception of Nov. 24 at Arkansas, which has already been picked for CBS and will kick at 1:30 p.m. in Fayetteville, Ark.
The Tiger program is winding down summer school and off-season workouts, and is preparing for the start of fall camp, which begins Aug. 1 in Columbia. Tickets are available for the season by calling 1-800-CAT-PAWS (884-PAWS locally), or by going online at
