A little history: Mizzou after losing Big 12 opener

October 13, 2009

Following the loss to Nebraska on Thursday, Missouri football finds itself at 0-1 in Big 12 play for the first time since 2005. The schedule gets harder before it gets easier, with games at #16/14 Oklahoma State and at home against #3/2 Texas up next.

Here’s a look at how Missouri has done in the last decade when dropping its first conference game. Plus some flashback pictures to go with it.
