Fans celebrate the start of Mizzou football
COLUMBIA - The streets on MU's campus were packed Saturday as the Tigers opened their season against UT Martin.
Fans from all over came out to tailgate.
MU alumnus Bob Sterneck and three generations of his family were tailgating in the same spot they've had for 40 years.
"It's the best seven weekends of the year," Sterneck said.
Though it was warm, fans were excited to cheer on the Tigers.
"It's just fun seeing old friends and getting back together and having a good time," he said.
The next home game is Sept. 8 against Wyoming.
