It’s been a rough start to the season for Missouri. It gave up 43 points to Missouri State, lost to South Carolina in week 2, and then fired its defensive coordinator before week 3.
The Tigers take on Purdue today at 4 p.m. but it appears that most Missouri fans didn’t get the memo.
Just minutes before kickoff, Memorial Stadium is basically a ghost town.

This has to be tough for Missouri players, given the poor fan turnout. And while Purdue isn’t the greatest team in the world, it’s still a Power 5 opponent, especially one that could knock off the Tigers. Missouri did lose at home to Middle Tennessee State last year at home.
The Tigers and Boilermakers are playing over on the SEC Network.
