When the Kansas football team trotted onto the field that day it had everything to gain and little to lose. For the third time that season the Jayhawks were facing the nation’s number one team. They had a shot at the conference championship but were one-touchdown underdogs. This was 1960. The Tigers of Missouri had attained the heady number one ranking, the first time Missouri had ever been ranked that high, and one of the few times Missouri had been ranked in the top ten. According to the official record Missouri finished the season with an 11-0 record, including an Orange Bowl win. But every true son of old Mizzou knows in his heart the record was really 10-1.
