The two schools announced an agreement Monday that would revive one of college basketball’s fiercest rivalries, one that held the distinction of being the longest continuous rivalry west of the Mississippi River before Mizzou left the Big 12 for the SEC in 2012.

The agreement covers six games between the 2020-21 and 2025-26 seasons, with two games apiece being held in Kansas’ Allen Fieldhouse, Missouri’s Mizzou Arena and the Sprint Center in Kansas City.

It’s falling and I get that and the fans are reeling just a little bit. We’re going down to Dallas, our guys are gonna be ready to play.

COLUMBIA, Mo . — The last matchup between Missouri and Missouri State — known at the time as Missouri Teachers College — came in 1923. Even a near century between games hasn’t been enough to dampen this rivalry between the two schools, which open the season against each other Saturday.

The Kansas – Kansas State football rivalry is an American college football rivalry between the Kansas Jayhawks football team of the University of Kansas and Kansas State Wildcats football team of Kansas State University, contested since 1902

“One of the best aspects of college athletics is rivalries, and we are thrilled that our fans and student-athletes will get to experience this Border Showdown rivalry once again,” Kansas athletic director Jeff Long said in a statement. “We have quietly sought input from fans and supporters on the renewal of this series, and we believe the overriding sentiments are that this historic rivalry should resume.”

  'I'm standing here in the middle of climate change': How USDA is failing farmers ROCK PORT, Missouri — Rick Oswald is standing on the doorstep of the white farmhouse he grew up in, but almost nothing is as it should be. To his right, four steel grain bins, usually shiny and straight, lie mangled and ripped open, spilling now-rotting corn into piles like sand dunes. The once manicured lawn has been overtaken by waist-tall cattails, their seeds carried in by flood waters that consumed this house, this farm and everything around it last spring. “This house is 80 years old,” Oswald says, stepping inside the darkened living room, which now smells faintly of mold. “Never had water in it.

The federal government once again plans to carry out lethal injections after a nearly two- decade hiatus on capital punishment, the Justice Department announced Thursday. Attorney General William Barr said that DOJ will switch from a “three-drug protocol” caught up in legal challenges to using a single

After a 2- decade lapse in federal capital punishment, AG Bill Barr has ordered the Bureau of Prisons to schedule executions for 5 death-row inmates convicted of murdering children. Daniel Lewis Lee, a member of a white supremacist group, murdered a family of three, including an eight-year-old girl.

“Hopefully, this renewal on the hardwood will lead to more opportunities (to play Kansas) down the road in other sports, too,” Mizzou athletic director Jim Sterk said in a dueling statement. “Rivalries make college sports great, and there is no question that when Missouri and Kansas face off in any sport, it’s important to a lot of people.”

For now, the agreement is basketball only, but both schools signaled interest in including more sports. The rivalry dates to 1907 in basketball and 1891 in football. Animosity between the two states, sometimes turning violent, dates back to before the Civil War.

An unofficial form of the rivalry returned two years ago when the teams played an exhibition game at the Sprint Center to raise funds for hurricane relief at a time when storms were ravaging Texas, Louisiana, Florida, Puerto Rico and several Caribbean countries.

The two schools eventually raised $1.8 million and gave us all a reminder of how great it would be for the real thing to return. Now, that’s a reality.

  Misery Index: Wisconsin won't be able to erase ugly mark on its resume after loss to Illinois This week for Wisconsin was supposed to be about the buildup for the program against Ohio State. Instead, it is reeling from an ugly loss to Illinois.No matter how much you maximize what Wisconsin can be as a program, the Badgers are not going to win a college football national championship. Not now, and probably not ever. The recruiting landscape just doesn’t make it possible for Wisconsin in this day and age, and that’s completely fine.

Soon after 'Doctor Who’s' appearance in 1963, novels surrounding the series started to appear. The first ever novelization came out on 12 November, 1964, almost exactly a year after the first episode came out. Since then over 150 novelizations and 200 spin-off books have been published

Missouri is the next battleground in the decades -long fight over right-to-work, and labor unions hope workers will turn out to vote down Proposition A. As state after state adopts right-to-work laws, national unions are hoping Missouri is the "wall" that the policy's supporters can't get through.
