Other the weekend another Braggin’ Rights victory went into the books making that 5 straight victories for the Illini. The annual basketball game between the University of Illinois Fighting Illinois and University of Missouri Tigers takes places over the Christmas weekend each year. It is rare for being a prolonged out of conference series, but also features a near 50-50 split of the arena in St Louis. It makes for a rather remarkable atmosphere. I was blown away by my first experience and it was one of the rare times where I was 100% happy with my decision to buy tickets. Let’s hope the streak continues next year and we take home Braggin’ Rights for another year!
