Missouri Accepts Bid To Independence Bowl, Opponent North Carolina?

Missouri was passed over by all eight bowl games with Big 12 ties and will head to Shreveport, La. to play in the Independence Bowl.

Missouri is headed to Shreveport, La. to play in the Independence Bowl, their third appearance in the bowl in the last nine years. Wide receiver Jerrell Jackson broke the news via Twitter at about 5:10 p.m. on Sunday. Some expected Missouri to be passed over by Iowa State for the Pinstripe Bowl, but the Independence Bowl was never an option in most people's minds.

Rumblings say that the Tigers' opponent will be North Carolina, but that has yet to be confirmed.

Gary Pinkel has to be pleased with the way that the season has turned around with the recent winning streak, moving from 4-5 and a possibility of missing out on this time of year to becoming a second half force in the Big 12. Now they have a chance to go 8-5 and put up a respectable season.
