The Missouri and Colorado football teams are set to compete in a home-and-home series in 2025 and 2030, the football programs announced on Wednesday morning.

The two former rivals will head to Boulder, Colorado, on Sept. 20, 2025, for the first game and finish the series on Sept. 7, 2030, in Columbia.

Coincidentally, the 2030 game will mark the 40th anniversary of the infamous "Fifth Down" game the programs played during the 1990 season. For the uninitiated, that game got its name after Colorado was awarded and scored on an extra down after an error by the referees.
