Missouri capped a roller-coaster week of adversity with an emotional 20-16 win over BYU on Saturday at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City. Former Tigers took to Twitter to talk about coach Gary Pinkel, the new uniform combination and more.
The Tigers’ whiteout uniforms were a hit, especially with former Mizzou receivers Jeremy Maclin and T.J. Moe.
Mizzou uniforms ????!

Check out Mizzou's uniform tonight. Had some Oregon flavor to it. https://t.co/uHobfZZq7P

The win couldn’t have come at a better time, and Pinkel called it one of the best games he’s been a part of. Naturally, Mizzou’s winningest coach capped the moment by hitting his dance.
It’s not quite the whip or the nae nae, but “The Pinkel Dance” is always well received by his players. The nation similarly enjoyed it.

Mizzou alums loved the emotion after the win:
Great Moment out there for #Mizzou Nation. Coach P has done so much for me, and my development as a Coach and Man. Thank you so much Coach!

South End Zone facility in his name. Or statue of a man wearing a sun visor. You choose. Well deserved. Pinkel is the GOAT!

The former Tigers weren’t alone. Even the national media was enamored with the emotion following the win that was evident in Pinkel’s interaction with his players.

Just one win from bowl eligibility with two games remaining, Moe has a simple message for Mizzou fans …
Hope the place is sold out for Pinkel's own senior night. Send him out with honor. https://t.co/4QZ1L6dZdi
