COLUMBIA — Columbia will already be buzzing with excitement on Oct. 12, the day before the Missouri-Alabama football game. Missouri sports fans, however, now have one more event to look forward to.
The Missouri men's and women's basketball teams will kick off their seasons that evening at Mizzou Arena, according to MUTigers.com.
The event will begin at 6 pm, with an hour of autograph signings from both squads. "Mizzou Madness" will also feature scrimmages from both squads, as well as "contests, games and giveaways."
Admission and parking will be free, but fans must remove their vehicles from adjacent lots by 10 p.m. to make room for football fans.
