Fans were invited to arrive early, wear gold and be loud, and they got the message loud and clear. ESPN’s live broadcast took place amid a sea of cheering Tiger fans in anticipation of tonight’s game against the University of Kansas, one of the nation’s most historic rivalries.
That explains why tickets for the match-up are in high demand, some going for up to $2,000 on Craig’s List.
About a dozen KU fans showed up for the ESPN event, and though they were loud and proud, Missouri fans did their best to drown them out, or at least riducule them alongside the Antlers.
Tip off is at 8 p.m. in Columbia.
