CFB: Missouri student leader touts live tiger mascot


Associated Press

COLUMBIA, Mo. A University of Missouri student leader wants to bring a real tiger on the football field as the school's mascot.

Missouri Students Association President Tim Noce (NOH'-chee) says having a live tiger at Faurot Field would increase school spirit and draw attention to Missouri athletics. He estimates the cost of using a live tiger at $2 million and says it would require private donations.

Similar efforts are in place at Louisiana State University and the University of Memphis, two other schools with tiger mascots.
