Update 6/15/20: Missouri will host Liberty on December 9, 2020 per public records obtained by ASOR.
The other games of the series are currently scheduled to be played December 2, 2021 in Lynchburg and December 7, 2022 in Columbia. Liberty will receive $20,000 for each of the two trips to Missouri.
CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein is reporting that Liberty and Missouri have agreed to a multi-year series starting this coming season.
The Flames will visit the SEC opponent during the 2020-21 season as well as 2022-23 with the Tigers coming to Lynchburg during the 2021-22 season to play at Liberty Arena.
A member of the SEC, Missouri finished 15-16 overall and 7-11 in conference play last season behind third year coach Cuonzo Martin.
Missouri will be the first SEC member to ever play at Liberty and first member of a power conference to visit Liberty since Clemson did so during the 2009-10 season.
The Flames and Tigers have met just one time previously, Missouri getting the upper hand, 87-76, on Dec. 19, 1994.
Sources: Missouri and Liberty have agreed to a multi-year series starting next season in Columbia.
