ST. LOUIS — The Bud Light Braggin' Rights Game will remain at Scottrade Center in St. Louis until at least 2017.

"Scottrade Center has been the proud home of the annual Braggin' Rights game since the building opened in 1994," said Tom Stillman, Chairman of the St. Louis Blues and Scottrade Center.  "We are thrilled that this St. Louis tradition will continue through 2017."

The Bud Light Braggin' Rights Game began play in St. Louis on Dec. 10, 1980, and has been played 31 times over the last 32 years, including this season's meeting on Dec. 22 at 5 p.m. on ESPN2.

Illinois holds a 20-11 series advantage in St. Louis and an 11-10 lead in games over the last 21 years. Missouri has won the last three meetings following up a nine-game winning streak by Illinois from 2000-08.

The Fighting Illini open regular season play Nov. 9 vs. Colgate. Missouri opens its schedule Nov. 10 vs. Southern Illinois Edwardsville.
