It won’t be an easy game for Kim Anderson’s team, but maybe they gained a bit of an edge against Arizona with this announcement today:

Last year’s game in Tuscon didn’t go so well for the Tigers in an 88-52 thumping at the hands of at the time, a very inexperienced, freshman-laden Wildcat team. It was one of many blemishes on Mizzou’s resume from a 10-21 season.
This year’s tilt will be in front of a nationally televised audience on ESPN2. Mizzou’s conference tip-times were announced a few days ago, but there are still non-conference games that have yet been given a start time. This includes the Braggin’ Rights game against Illinois.
