IU to play Missouri in football in 2013 and 2014.

Per the Columbia Tribune and various other sources, IU will play a home-and-home football series with Missouri beginning with a game in Bloomington in 2013 and concluding with a game in Columbia in 2014.  Unlike against most BCS conference schools, IU has a strong historical record against Mizzou: 6-2-2, including a 6-0-2 record from 1985-1992.  With games against Virginia in 2009 and 2011, Mizzou in 2013 and 2014, and South Florida in 2015 and 2016, IU seems to be seeking at least one BCS conference opponent in each non-conference slate.  In the era of the 12-game schedule, I think that's a good idea.  My only complaint is that the renewal of this series has reminded me that my freshman year of college, the last time IU and Missouri played, was 17 years ago.
