KANSAS CITY, Mo. - After opening its season for the past two years in St. Louis, Missouri is planning on taking its road show to the other side of the state to Kansas City’s Arrowhead Stadium. The Iowa Hawkeyes apparently are watching closely.
Missouri has been trying to work out the details of a matchup in 2005 against Arkansas State at Arrowhead in what would be the Tigers’ first visit to Kansas City since 1945, said Chad Moller, Missouri’s sports information director.
The Tigers, a football program that dates to 1890, have never played at Arrowhead, a 79,451-seat venue that has been home of the Kansas City Chiefs since 1972.
“It’s likely going to happen,” he said. “We just don’t have everything in finalized form on our end.”

COLUMBIA COLLEGE MEN’S BASKETBALL: The Cougars won 93-48 in an American Midwest Conference game at Harris Stowe.
Khamari Ballard led the Cougars with 26 points and Tim Melz added 14. An efficient half-court defense helped Columbia College build a 48-15 lead at halftime.
Coach Bob Burchard said he was pleased with his team’s play, considering the most recent time the Cougars (25-2, 6-1) played was a 98-88 win against Hannibal-LaGrange on Feb. 12.
