COLUMBIA, Mo. – Mizzou’s 2021 football season kicks off on Saturday in Columbia, Missouri against Central Michigan.

Connor Bazelak will be Mizzou’s starting quarterback. He was a redshirt in 2019 and then because of COVID, the 2020 season did not count against his eligibility.

“I started last year, so people know I’m not technically like a true freshman,” Bazelak said. “This has been a great opportunity to improve in every area of my game on and off the field. We’ve just been here doing lifting and conditioning sessions and it’s just been great to take the next step in my leadership of this team.
