Mizzou Wins Border Showdown
KANSAS CITY- In what could be the final border showdown, the University of Missouri football team beat the University of Kansas 24-10.
Many believe this is the last time the two teams will meet in this special game since MU has announced its intentions to join the Southeastern Conference next year.
Saturday's game marked the 120th Border War between the two teams. Since 2007 the games have been held in Kansas City.
In the game, quarterback James Franklin stumbled early, throwing three interceptions. But Franklin came back to complete two passes for touchdowns in the second half.
The game also marked the return of head coach Gary Pinkel to the sidelines. Pinkel missed last week's game against Texas Tech in Columbia while serving a one-week suspension for a drunken driving arrest.
The Tigers finish their season with a 7-5 record.
