Welcome back Mizzou faithful! It's time for Bragging Rights as we take on the bitter rival from across the river that's still taking our phone calls, the Illini of Illinois.
This yearly tradition has lost a bit of its shine since Frank Haith left the building, but it's Bragging Rights so you never know what's going to happen.

If you want an idea, check out Sam's preview piece where he's guardedly optimistic which makes me feel like he knows something we all don't...

Anyway, we know what's at stake, for fun, let's look back on some of the good times!

1993

The end of the 2010 game

Matt Pressey's greatest play as a Tiger from 2011

You get the idea. There were good times and whose to say tonight can't be another classic Mizzou-Illinois game?!

Mizzou's going all gold tonight so put on all the gold you have, sit back, crack a Bud Light and let the Bragging Rights flow over you like honey.

Share your predictions, favorite Mizzou-Illinois memories below and let's get at it!

M-I-Z...
