The Missouri Tigers and Oklahoma State Cowboys can expect some football, food and fun on their Friday spent in Memphis. With game day getting closer the Auto Zone Liberty Bowl has a daylong worth of events for the two teams to enjoy today.

The day begins with a FCA breakfast sponsored by the Memphis chapter of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Then the two teams get serious as Missouri practices first in the morning at 10:45, Oklahoma State waits until 11:45 to get to work. In the afternoon both teams will get the chance to visit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. MU goes first, then the Cowboys an hour later. These tours of the hospital by the players and coaches are always a memorable time for the bowl game participants. Fans can expect to see highlights of these hospital visits on television during the game broadcast.

The evening will see a pair of activities for both teams to enjoy. Up first is a players and coaches dinner at the convention center. A pro rodeo will follow from the Agricenter Show Arena. That event will conclude the day full of fun for the football players. From a morning breakfast all the way to an eventful rodeo the two teams are set to kick up a good time thanks to their Auto Zone Liberty Bowl hosts.
