Friendly competition between MU, KU to donate food

Tuesday, November 22, 2011 | 4:30 p.m. CST

COLUMBIA — MU and the University of Kansas are competing in the fifth annual virtual food drive for Harvesters Community Food Network. The money raised will be donated to the organization's Kansas City branch. 

People can donate online until 2:30 p.m. Saturday when the football game between the two universities begins.

Although MU has won for the competition for the past four years, as of 4 p.m. Tuesday, MU had raised $8,400 while the University of Kansas had raised $11,580. 

Along with this friendly competition, the Mizzou Alumni Association is sponsoring two events before the game. Missouri Athletics Director Mike Alden and former Missouri football players Tony Temple and Corby Jones will participate in a rally hosted by Steven St. John, a Kansas City radio presenter.

People are also invited to attend the Border Showdown Tailgate at the Founder's Club and Arrowhead Field before the game.
