Homecoming mums make a comeback
COLUMBIA - An old tradition was spruced up for a new generation on MU's campus for the 105th Homecoming this weekend, Homecoming mums.
These flowers were worn by women in the 50s and 60s. Since then, they haven't been a popular tradition.
Tia Odom, MU football Coach Barry Odom's wife, encouraged MU to bring them back.
The 2016 Homecoming Court wore mums during the parade, in addition to MU alumni.
