COLUMBIA, Mo. – The 2022 University of Missouri football schedule will feature seven home games with the Tigers set to face Louisiana Tech on Saturday, Sept. 3, 2022 at Faurot Field.

The Tigers and Bulldogs will meet for the first time on the gridiron. 

“We worked hard to ensure a seventh home game,” Mizzou Director of Athletics Desireé Reed-Francois said. “It’s important to our football program, fans and local economy to have a full slate of games at Faurot Field. We look forward to welcoming Louisiana Tech to Columbia for the first time as part of a competitive home schedule which features 2021 National Champion Georgia, Kentucky, Arkansas and Vanderbilt.”

“I’m grateful to our administration and everyone involved in bringing a seventh home game to Faurot Field next season,” head coach Eliah Drinkwitz said. “Gameday brings a fun energy to our city and our fans. We look forward to hosting Coach Cumbie and the Bulldogs in September.”
