Big 12 conference play gets under way today with matchups across the league. While the Jayhawks have one more non-con game to complete before things get started there are definitely some games of interest in the league today. Most notably our two biggest rivals in the North and likely two biggest challengers in the North going toe to toe in Columbia.
Kansas State is up to a top 10 ranking while the Missouri Tigers seem to be slowly hitting their stride at just the right time much like last season. The two face off in what should be a sold out Mizzou Arena. This will be a great opportunity to see what both squads are made of. How does Kansas State handle the Mizzou pressure? How does Mizzou handle the offense provided by the Kansas State guard play? Can Mizzou answer any of the questions regarding inside play after the loss of Carrol and Lyons from a year ago?
Kansas State provides Missouri with an chance to show they are here to contend, while Mizzou provides K-State with a chance to further solidify themselves as a top 10 team by going on the road against a quality opponent. This one tips at 2pm ET on ESPN2 and promises to be the highlight of the opening weekend. Full conference slate for the day is as follows, all times listed are central standard time. Enjoy the day, and be sure to join RCT tomorrow for the Kansas vs. Tennessee Preview and Open Game Thread as Kansas wraps up it's non conference season with a Top 25 road contest.
