Braggin' Rights game

(HOI) -- In a web-special event, the fate of the annual Braggin' Rights game, between Illinois and Missouri, was decided by the flip of a coin. Normally the game is played in St. Louis, but COVID-19 forced the game to be played on either university's campus.

The Illini logo meant the game would be played at the State Farm Center and the Tigers logo meant the game would be played at Mizzou Arena.

College basketball analyst Andy Katz flipped the coin and it came down on the black and gold Missouri Tigers logo.

Losing the toss means the Illini will travel to Columbia to play Missouri on December 12th. This is the first time the game won't be played at a neutral site since 1979, when Missouri won at Assembly Hall 67-66.
