Missouri fans celebrate

Missouri fans celebrate after the Tigers beat Kansas during their matchup Feb. 4, 2012, at Mizzou Arena in Columbia.

Missouri and Kansas will meet in men's basketball on Saturday, Dec. 10 this season as revealed by KU's non-conference schedule release on social media Tuesday afternoon.

The Tigers and Jayhawks will play for a second straight season after the series resumed in 2021 following a nine-year hiatus.  Kansas thumped Missouri in Lawrence last December, 102-65.

This season's game will be the first between the long-time border rivals in Columbia since a 74-71 win by then No.4 ranked Mizzou over No. 8 Kansas on February 5, 2012.  KU has won two straight match-ups over MU, including last year's game and the return match-up in Lawrence in 2012.
