Game Preview

When it comes to the annual Braggin’ Rights Game between Illinois and Missouri in St. Louis, just assume there’ll be an upset.

That’s not good news for No. 13 Illinois (8-2), which enters Friday night’s game against Missouri (7-4) at Enterprise Center as the healthy favorite. But it’s also an old story for Brad Underwood’s Fighting Illini.

Illinois entered the last four Braggin’ Rights games as a favorite only to be taken down by Missouri. Last year’s battle was particularly painful as the Tigers led by as much as 35 and rolled to a 93-71 triumph over the 16th-ranked Illini.
