March Madness is here, and the Missouri Tigers are returning to the Big Dance after missing out in 2022. A strong season for Mizzou earned them a No. 7 seed in the South Region.
This will be the Tigers’ third tournament bid in the last six seasons, and the South Region contains fellow SEC team and No. 1 overall seed, Alabama.
In terms of upsets, the Tigers need to be careful, as historically the No. 7 seed is the most upset team in the tournament, being toppled by No. 10 seeds 57 times, or 39.5 percent of the time.
Here’s when and where to watch the Missouri Tigers in the NCAA Tournament.
