It was a tough week for the University of Missouri and especially Tigers Football.

One day after Gary Pinkel announced he would retire at season’s end due to health reasons, Mizzou won its first game in more than a month, holding off BYU, 20-16.

An emotional Pinkel, who stood behind several of his players’ participation in the #ConcernedStudent1950 protests on campus, talked to his team after the victory.
