Mizzou / K-State battle announced as a sellout in Columbia

Missouri’s home game scheduled for Saturday morning against Kansas State has officially sold out.  The game is set to kick off at 11 a.m, with 9 o’clock pregame on KTTN FM 92.3.

This marks the first sellout at Memorial Stadium since the Tigers’ triumphant 38-27 victory over Ole Miss on October 12, 2019. Additionally, it signifies the first nonconference sellout since Mizzou’s 24-20 win against Arizona State on September 15, 2012.

The sellout achievement follows a recent attendance record set during the Tigers’ season opener, a 35-10 victory over South Dakota. A total of 50,434 fans attended the game, marking the highest attendance for a season opener since 2019.

The Wildcats, with a 2-0 record, commenced their season with a dominant 45-0 shutout against Southeast Missouri and rolled to a victory in Manhattan over Troy on Saturday.

With a solid ranking in the Top 25, Saturday will mark the first time the Wildcats have been ranked when playing a game in Columbia since 2002, when they held the No. 19 position. Notably, Missouri faced a 24-14 defeat in that matchup.

Last season, the two former Big 12 rivals reunited for the first time in 11 years, resulting in a 40-12 victory for Kansas State on the road.
