The Tigers are in town. 

Thousands of excited University of Missouri fans rolled into Knoxville this weekend, ready for a big SEC game day.

They came from all over, with many driving the 610 miles from Columbia, Mo.

"It was definitely coming down, getting a taste of the SEC; the SEC is the greatest football conference in the county," explained 1999 Missouri Graduate David Rogers, who flew in from Kansas City.

"I heard the fans here are great and we want to reciprocate when they come to Columbia so we want to represent,"said fan Rick Wade who drove in from Missouri.

So how does their enthusiasm compare to other visiting teams?

According to the UT Ticket Office, the university allocated 4,500 tickets for Gator fans during the match up with Florida this year.

Alabama offered their students 9,500 tickets.

And the ticket office says 4,900 Missouri fans are expected at Neyland Stadium Saturday afternoon.
