Confirmed: Missouri Will Face Minnesota In Citrus Bowl

The Missouri Tigers are headed to Florida to face the Minnesota Gophers in the Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl on January 1.

The Tigers make it to the Citrus Bowl after losing the SEC Championship to Alabama. Still, Missouri finished with 10 wins and only one SEC loss on the year, so they will give the SEC a good chance to come away with a win over the Big Ten.

Minnesota surprised many people with a strong season out of the Big Ten. While Wisconsin was widely regarded as the Big Ten team for this bowl, the Gophers are still a strong representative here. Minnesota went 8-4 and 5-3 in a stacked Big Ten Conference.

Minnesota and Missouri haven't faced each other in over 50 years coming into this bowl game.
