The Missouri Tigers and Illinois Fighting Illini don’t like each other, and as they take the court in St. Louis on Saturday night in the annual Braggin’ Rights game, there’s not much common ground between the schools.

Illinois has won the last five meetings between the two schools, so when the game gets going, they’ll set this newfound camaraderie aside to focus on picking up the win.
For now, though, they’re coming together to hate on the Jayhawks a little bit.
