The Missouri Tigers added Miami University (Ohio) and Indiana to future football schedules, and they’ve pushed back their dates with Wyoming possibly eliminating a showdown between Gary Pinkel and Dave Christensen.
The series with Miami is a two-year deal that will feature games in Columbia in 2010 and in Oxford, Ohio, in 2012. The Tigers and Redhawks have never played each other in football.
Mizzou and Indiana agreed to a two-year home-and-home series, beginning with a game in Bloomington, Ind. in the 2013 season, followed with a return game in Columbia in 2014. The Tigers and Hoosiers will be playing for the first time since 1992, when Indiana took a 20-10 win in Bloomington. The Hoosiers own a 6-2-2 lead in the all-time series.
Mizzou has agreed to push back the beginning of the scheduled series with Wyoming, at the request of the Cowboys Athletic Department. Games scheduled for 2011 (Columbia) and 2012 (Laramie) have been pushed back to 2017 (Columbia) and 2018 (Laramie).
Former offensive coordinator Dave Christensen accepted the head coaching job at Wyoming this past off season after working for several years under MU coach Gary Pinkel.
