Columbia, Mo. - Mizzou Athletics announced dates for its 2013 Basketball Blackout and Gold Rush games on Tuesday.
The Tigers will host their annual Blackout contest next Tuesday (Feb. 19) vs. Florida and the Gold Rush game will come on Senior Night (March 5) vs. Arkansas.
Fans are encouraged to wear the appropriate colors for both games, which will be televised nationally on ESPN. The Feb. 19 game will tipoff at 8 p.m. and the March 5 game vs. Arkansas will begin at 6 p.m.
Missouri and Florida are meeting for just the second time in series history and the Gators are making their first-ever trip to Columbia.
While Florida currently leads the SEC and is ranked No. 6 nationally, Mizzou is unbeaten at home this year and boasts a 15-game home court winning streak, which is the seventh longest active streak in the country.
The Tigers have enjoyed good fortunes vs. Top 25 opponents at home over the last five seasons, going 8-2 overall, including a 4-2 mark vs. the Top 10. Missouri is 3-0 vs. ranked foes at home under Frank Haith, including last weekend's 98-79 win over No. 23 Ole Miss.
