Missouri coach Gary Pinkel said during an appearance on ESPN's SportsCenter Monday that the Tigers want to play Kansas again.

After being a member of some incarnation of the Big 12 — including the Big Eight — since 1907, Missouri moved to the SEC in 2012.

The conference swap effectively ended the Kansas-Missouri rivalry, which has roots in the mid-19th century and is known as the Border War.

While Missouri has expressed interest in playing Kansas as a non-conference opponent, there's been no indication the Jayhawks will schedule the Tigers in basketball or football.

The schools last played in football on November 26, 2011, a 24-10 Missouri win.
