Rivalries & Top Games to Attend

Missouri vs Kansas

Rival Team: Kansas Jayhawks

When you think of Missouri’s biggest rival Kansas is the first thing that comes to mind. They have been playing since the 1890s and are neck and neck in their all-time series against each other, with the Tigers holding a slight 57-54-9 edge. These two have been in this constant border war struggle even during the actual Border War between Kansas and Missouri citizens during the Civil War. In 2012 Missouri moved to the SEC, and since then these two bitter rivals haven’t met on the gridiron. It has been a while since they played, but if and when they play, it’ll be an all-out brawl that you won’t want to miss.

Battle Line Trophy

Rival Team: Arkansas Razorbacks

Another border war exists between Missouri and Arkansas. However, one of the main issues that have fueled flames to this rivalry was former Tigers basketball head coach Mike Anderson leaving Mizzou to go coach the Razorbacks. This left many Tigers fans feeling very salty and has created bitter feelings toward the Razorbacks. So watch out because when the Razorbacks come into town, there is no holding back.

The Battle for Columbia

Rival Team: South Carolina Gamecocks

Missouri vs. South Carolina, also known as the Battle for Columbia has developed because both schools are located in Columbia of their respective states. The winner of contests between Tigers and the Gamecocks receives the Mayors' Cup, which the Tigers have taken home once in these school’s three meetings.
