It is “Tiger Stripe” week at Missouri, where they encourage fans to stripe Memorial Stadium by assigning alternating sections with instructions to wear either black or gold.
In line with how the crowd will look, the Tigers unveiled their own striped uniforms for the game against No. 16 Georgia, which kicks at 7:30 ET and will be televised on SEC Network.

The first Tiger Stripe game came on homecoming in 2014 against Vanderbilt. It’s become a yearly tradition since, and this will be the third iteration. Mizzou has yet to lose a Tiger Stripe game, though the crowd looked better than the football on the field in last year’s 9-6 win over UConn.
Georgia, at 2-0 and ranked No. 16, is easily the best team the Tigers have scheduled the game for. Last year’s UConn team finished 6-7, while the 2014 Commodores won only three games.
If you’re attending the game Saturday, use this map to know whether to wear black or gold.
