Mizzou is known as the birthplace of Homecoming. It began in 1911 when former athletic director Chester Brewer called for alumni to "come home" for the annual football game versus kU. Today, Mizzou Homecoming has grown into one of the largest student-run celebrations of its kind and voted by MU students and alumni as one of their favorite traditions at Mizzou.
