NASHVILLE, Tenn. — In Eli Drinkwitz's first season at the helm of Mizzou football, his team is going bowling.
Multiple outlets, and Missouri players themselves, are reporting Sunday that the team will be heading to Nashville, Tennessee for bowl season to take on Iowa in the Music City Bowl.
The Music City Bowl is slated to be played in Nashville on Dec. 30.
Drinkwitz had previously said the 5-5 Tigers would accept a bowl bid this year, as every team was eligible to be selected no matter their record due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Tigers starting running back and senior leader Larry Rountree announced on Twitter he planned on playing in the Music City Bowl, even though he could have opted to sit out as an NFL draft hopeful.
Missouri finished up their 10-game SEC schedule on Saturday with a 51-32 loss to Mississippi State in Starkville.
Iowa finished its shortened Big Ten schedule at 6-2 on the season.
