Football Cake Pops
I also think it's very important to indoctrinate the children into the football love, and the Mizzou love. So, giving them sweet things with a requirement that they complete the phrase 'M-I-Z'... with 'Z-O-U'... seems to work.
These football cake pops are super easy to make.
Cake, baked and cooled
1-2 cups icing
Light Cocoa Candy Melts (or chocolate almond bark)
White Candy Melts (or white almond bark)
Squeeze Bottle w/ Tip #1 or #2

1 tsp. dough scoop.
*Note: I actually added too much icing to this batch of cake pops, so they look a little sticky. They are. Don't be me. Add the icing a little at a time. Working with cake pops that have too much icing in them is really a pain!
When you're ready to dip, melt the chocolate candy in the microwave with about 1 Tbsp. of oil per bag of melts. I use power level 3, stopping to stir every 30 seconds. You never want the melts to get hot, just warm. They are ready when they are just melted.
*Note, when it's warm in my kitchen, I use an ice pack underneath the plate of cake balls to keep them cool while I work. I also only work on about 5 cake pops at a time.
Play Ball! (Oh, wait... that's baseball. Well, whatever.)
