Mizzou adds service academy to future schedules
Missouri will soon be playing an opponent that it hasn’t faced since 1982. And by the time the two programs go head-to-head, nearly 50 years will have passed.
Mizzou will be playing Army in both 2029 and 2033, per FBSchedules.com, which obtained a copy of the contract for the upcoming games. The Tigers will host the Black Knights for both matchups, which will take place Oct. 13, 2029, and Oct. 15, 2033, at Faurot Field.
The last time the two teams faced off was Sept. 11, 1982, when Missouri won, 23-10. The Tigers lead the all-time series against the Black Knights, 3-1, with Army’s only win over Mizzou coming in 1971.
According to FBSchedules.com, Missouri will pay Army a $1.9 million guarantee for each of the upcoming two games.
Mizzou’s 2029 non-conference schedule is now complete, as it will also face Missouri State (Sept. 1) and Illinois (Sept. 15) at home and Northern Illinois (Sept. 29) on the road. In 2033, it also has a home matchup against Illinois.
Army is an independent program, so Missouri is now one of five games on its 2029 schedule and three on its 2033 schedule.
