The 2018 Missouri football schedule was released Tuesday, and the agenda features a rather daunting task.
The Tigers will make their first-ever trip to Tuscaloosa, Ala., to face the Crimson Tide on Oct. 13. They previously played Alabama in Birmingham in 1975 and upset the No. 2-ranked team in the nation.
Missouri opens the 2018 season on Sept. 1, playing host to UT-Martin. The Tigers will face Wyoming for the first time the following week before traveling to Purdue, which just beat this year’s Missouri team 35-3 over the weekend.
The Tigers will play eight SEC opponents next season, with a home date against Memphis on Oct. 20 sandwiched between them.
