Sterk “pretty dang optimistic” about Mizzou football this fall

Mizzou athletic director Jim Sterk says he is “pretty dang optimistic” we will see Tiger football this fall.

Sterk said Monday if the Mizzou campus at least stays operational during the pandemic we can have sports. But, he says fans are going to have to cooperate with mandatory mask-wearing and other requirements if they want to see the games in-person.

“We’ll have groups of social groupings, if you will, but also have an outline of here’s how we would like you to handle yourself while you’re here.”

Mizzou plans to have, at most, 25% capacity at Faurot Field for home football games.

The Tigers host Alabama on Sept. 8. It is one of five Mizzou opponents in the AP Top 25 released Monday.
