Mizzou’s upcoming game against Memphis is scheduled to kick off at 6:30 p.m. on September 23 in St. Louis, with ESPNU airing the match, as confirmed by the team on Monday.

This game will mark Missouri’s return to The Dome at America’s Center, where they last played on September 4, 2010, securing a 23-10 victory against Illinois. The Dome was previously the venue for six editions of the “Arch Rivalry” game between Missouri and Illinois from 2002 to 2010.

This matchup will be Mizzou’s third night game in the first four weeks of the season. It follows two evening starts in Missouri’s victories over South Dakota and Middle Tennessee, with an 11 a.m. Saturday game against Kansas State in between.

Memphis enters the game with a 2-0 record for the season, coming off a convincing 37-3 road win against Arkansas State. Before facing Mizzou, Memphis will host Navy on Thursday.  Pregame for the game in St. Louis hits the air at 4:30 on Saturday, September 23rd on KTTN FM 92.3.
