Missouri Takes The Field With Texas Flag To Honor Hurricane Harvey Victims

Teams around the country are finding ways to honor the victims of Hurricane Harvey.

While most have opted to wear a decal on their helmet, the Missouri Tigers decided to take things a step further.

Taking the field for the season opener, the Tigers stepped onto the turf with the Texas flag waving. Despite the fact that the two locations are separated by more than 800 miles, it was a welcomed show of support for those who were displaced or lost their lives at the hands of the natural disaster.

Teams around the country have found different ways to lend their support. Ohio State and Indiana both had decals on their helmets on Friday’s matchup. Florida and Maryland joined them with decals in their respective Saturday matchups.

Meanwhile, teams closer to the affected area are giving away free tickets and meals to the victims of the disaster.
