You’re probably curious as to why the commodore, a high-ranking naval officer, is so low on this list. Well, that’s because the Vanderbilt Commodore is not a military man, but rather the ‘Commodore’ Cornelius Vanderbilt.
One of the titans of industry alongside Andrew Carnegie and JP Morgan, Vanderbilt made a fortune off of the railroad and shipping business.
The Commodores, much like Cornelius Vanderbilt, won’t put up much of a fight when they take on Missouri on October 30, and we won’t even get to see Sarah Fuller this time.
Texas A&M Aggies
The second of a few human mascots on the schedule, for those who are uninitiated an Aggie is a farmer.
Strong enough, and well-equipped, the Texan farmer can take down birds of prey, raise gamecocks, and might even own a bulldog. That being said, they’re not even the strongest human on this list.
Texas A&M will be a huge test for Missouri this year, as Jimbo Fisher’s Aggies try to break Alabama’s SEC West stranglehold.
North Texas Mean Green
While UNT’s logo is an eagle, their mascot, the Mean Green, is actually in reference to former UNT and Pittsburgh Steelers defensive tackle ‘Mean’ Joe Greene.
Greene is regarded as one of the best ever, and is a 4-time Super Bowl Champion. Farmers might be strong and proud people, but a farmer wouldn’t stand a chance one-on-one against Greene in his prime.
UNT will visit Columbia on October 9th for the Homecoming game.
It’s hard to imagine that a hog could be so dangerous, but anyone who lives in hog country can tell you that they’re no joke.
Feral hogs have been known to gore humans and are responsible for multiple deaths, as recently as 2019.
On the field, the Razorbacks are always a tough challenge for Missouri, no matter how good or bad both teams are. This season’s game will take place the day after Thanksgiving, in Fayetteville.
