Over the course of the next two weeks, all 16 SEC teams will be given a "SEC Network Takeover" day. This will allow schools to showcase their favorite games from the past calendar year. Missouri has been assigned Saturday, July 6th, and the schedule they're putting out is loaded with classics.

Beginning at 11:00 PM on Friday night, Missouri will take center stage on SEC Network. They'll showcase 11 different sporting events from the past year, highlighted with two primetime events on Saturday evening.

The first primetime event will be aired at 6:30 PM, showcasing Missouri's gymnastics meet vs LSU. The #9 ranked Missouri Tigers hosted a record-setting 7,336 fans. This was a top-ten showdown as the #3 ranked LSU Tigers came to Columbia, MO in a battle of Tigers.

Immediately airing after the gymnastics meet will be one of the greatest games of the University's history. This of course is a reference to the 2023 Goodyear Cotton Bowl. Missouri clashed with Ohio State in a new years six bowl game. The program-changing game is one that any fan of Missouri athletics would be ecstatic to watch again.

I'd be remised to not mention the fact that at 4:00 AM, they're airing a men's basketball game against Arkansas-Pine Bluff. This is of course due to the fact that Missouri failed to win a conference game this past year. Hopefully next year there will be more options for the men's basketball program.

This will be the tenth consecutive summer with the "SEC Network Takeover", which has given all 16 schools an opportunity to program a full day on air. The SEC has done a great job of giving all different sports a platform with this takeover. It will be fun for fans of all sports to tune in on Saturday, July 6th, when Mizzou takes over the network.
