The Missouri Tigers have added the North Texas Mean Green to their 2021 football schedule, according to Mizzou’s official website.
Missouri will host North Texas at Faurot Field in Columbia on October 16, 2021. The game will be only the second meeting between the two schools. The Tigers won the first meeting 28-7 in Columbia back in 1995.
North Texas is the first non-conference opponent scheduled for Mizzou for the 2021 season.
In SEC play in 2021, the Missouri Tigers are slated to host Florida, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas A&M and travel to Georgia, Kentucky, Vanderbilt, and Arkansas.
North Texas, a member of Conference USA, now has three non-conference games set for 2021. The Mean Green are also scheduled to visit SMU on Sept. 11 and host Army on Oct. 9.
An additional change to Missouri’s future non-conference schedule was also identified. A 2017 trip to face UConn was changed from Sept. 23 to Oct. 28.
