The Missouri Tigers are taking on the Oklahoma State Cowboys in the Liberty Bowl, and they appear to have a new player on the field.
Instead of regular RB Larry Rountree III, some guy with the last name of “Routree III” is out on the field.
As you can see below, Rountree’s name was misspelled on his jersey for the Tigers’ bowl matchup:

That’s on the Mizzou equipment staff, as they should have double checked the names. It’s not too far off, though, so hopefully no one is too confused.
“Routree III” is struggling to find running room in the early going, though, so maybe he’ll get a jersey with his name spelled correctly at halftime and have a big second half.
