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.
