The 2013 Missouri Tigers football team (also called "Mizzou") will represent the University of Missouri in the 2013 NCAA Division I FBS football season. It will mark the Tigers' second season as a member of the Southeastern Conference (SEC) in the Eastern Division. The team will be led by head coach Gary Pinkel, in his 13th year, and will play its home games at Faurot Field in Columbia, Missouri. After missing out the previous season, Missouri will attempt to return to bowl game competition for 2013.

RecruitsEdit

Key losses:


All 20 recruits signed their National Letter of Intent on February 6, during the National Signing Period (February 6–April 1). [3][4]

On the eve of National Signing Day, Missouri ranks last in the SEC, 46th in the overall rankings according to Rivals.com.[5]
On the day after National Signing Day, Scout.com ranks Missouri as 36th (3.00) best overall, ahead of only Kentucky (39th) in the SEC.
Rivals.com has Mizzou at 39th (3.00).

Coach Pinkel likes the 20-name recruiting class.[6]

His coaching staff agrees with his analysis, as does former Mizzou wide receiver Jeremy Maclin.

Mizzou's class has 11 of the 20 recruits from Missouri. In 2011, Mizzou had 19 recruits, and in 2010, only 17.[7]
