The Tigers and the Bears have only met twice on the gridiron, with Missouri winning both previous contests, including a 72-43 shootout victory in 2017.
That win that day proved to be one for the offensive record books, as then Tigers star quarterback Drew Lock passed for 521 yards and 7 touchdowns in the victory, with the 7 TD passes standing as a school record to this date.
The Tigers, who are coming off a 5-5 mark in 2020, will open their 2021 schedule at home against Central Michigan on Saturday, Sept. 4.
