The case of the missing peace pipe

COLUMBIA — The Oklahoma-MU football rivalry existed before the Big 8 was the Big 12. In fact, it dates back to when MU played in the Big Six. With a long history and 91 games played, it's no surprise that the game's bragging rights developed into something more tangible.

In 1929, the MU student society Mystical Seven and athletic director Chester Brewer smoked a peace pipe together at halftime of the Oklahoma-MU game, according to the MU athletics Web site. It started a tradition that would last for decades.
