MUTigers.com: It was announced Thursday that Missouri and BYU have agreed to play each other in the 2015 season. The game will be played on November 14th at Arrowhead Stadium, home of the NFL’s Kansas City Chiefs. The game will mark the first FBS game to be featured at Arrowhead Stadium since Mizzou topped Kansas 24-10 in Big 12 Conference action back on November 26, 2011.
Kansas City Chiefs President Mark Donovan shared,
“We’ve been focused on bringing FBS football back to Arrowhead Stadium for some time and have investigated a number of ways to accomplish that. We want to thank both Missouri and BYU for making this possible. We know that this will be a unique opportunity for the players, coaches and fans of both institutions to experience the iconic Arrowhead atmosphere.”
Missouri Athletic Director Mike Alden shared in a released statement,
“We are very pleased to have this opportunity to bring Mizzou to Kansas City. Having a presence there is very important to us, and this game underscores our commitment to doing just that, as we indicated when we moved to the Southeastern Conference,” said Missouri athletic director Mike Alden in a release.
“This is an exciting, high-profile game for our fans, and we’re looking forward to working with the Kansas City Chiefs and the KC Sports Commission. We know from past experiences that they will do an outstanding job of making this a special event for Tiger fans.”
BYU Athletic Director Tom Holmoe said,
“It’s a great opportunity and challenge for our football team to play such a fine school as Missouri. They are a new SEC school with a rich football tradition going back to the Big 12. It will also be exciting for our team to play at Arrowhead Stadium in a region of the country where we haven’t been in a while.”
