USC is making its first ever trip to Columbia, Missouri this weekend, so I came by to take a peek at the stadium they will be playing in Saturday night. Mizzou’s stadium is called Memorial Stadium. The field is named after the school’s all time winningest coach Don Faurot, although he is not going to be the wins leader much longer, because Gary Pinkel is closing in fast. They also call this place “The Zou” which is my personal favorite.
My partner in crime Bill Pollock was nice enough to give me a tour of the digs here Friday. It is a quaint stadium and they are in the process of upgrading and expanding it now. Pull up a chair and come along as Bill gives us a quick peek at some of the nuances of the Tigers home field.
