The day after Head Coach Gary Pinkel announced his plan to resign at the end of the year, he picked up his 118th win in a game against Brigham Young University at Arrowhead Stadium. The win improved this season’s record to 5-5. It also moved Pinkel’s record to 6-1 in Kansas City, an area 19 current Tigers call home. Mizzou returns to The Zou next Saturday for the final home game of the season against Tennessee, with a 6:15 p.m. kickoff.
