Sep 3, 2013
Columbia, Mo. - Mizzou Athletics announced several game time and television designations for the men's basketball season on Tuesday. Five more Mizzou non-league games were picked up by national/regional networks, highlighted by the annual Bud Light Braggin' Rights Game in St. Louis and UCLA's first-ever trip to Columbia, Mo.
Mizzou and Illinois will again lock up on a Saturday afternoon as the Tigers look for their fifth consecutive win against the Fighting Illini on Dec. 21 at 4:30 p.m. CT. Missouri has won four consecutive games in the series and a win this season would mark the longest winning streak for the Tigers in series history.
ESPN also announced times for games against Western Michigan and at North Carolina State. The Tigers will meet the Broncos at home at 6 p.m. on Dec. 15 on ESPNU and will travel to Raleigh, N.C., for a 7 p.m. CT contest vs. the Wolfpack. That game will air on ESPN2.
CBS will carry UCLA's first trip to Mizzou Arena as the Tigers and Bruins cap a home-and-home series on Dec. 7 at 11:30 a.m. It will be the first of two home games on CBS this season. The Tigers and Kentucky Wildcats will meet on the network on Feb. 1.
A fifth game selected for television is the Nov. 12 contest against Southern Illinois. The game will air regionally on Fox Sports Midwest, as well as selected FSN affiliates across the country. Game time between the Tigers and Salukis is scheduled for 8 p.m.
Television network and game time information for Missouri Basketball's remaining contests will be announced later this month. Those games will air on the Mizzou Sports Network.
