COLUMBIA- The barbecue grills and beer were missing from the corner of Providence Road and Champions Drive, commonly known as “frat pit,” during Saturday’s football game. The popular location for student tailgating before football games was off-limits. The decision by campus officials to eliminate tailgating there has caused a stir among MU’s Greek community.
