Illinois vs Missouri: Complete Game Preview
Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Many families have unique holiday traditions they repeat on an annual basis. It is always an exciting time of year to share joy with loved ones.

When it comes to the rivalry between Missouri and Illinois, tradition is certainly intact, but love may be another story.

The annual Braggin' Rights game between No. 12 Missouri and No. 10 Illinois is set to take place on Saturday night at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis. The arena is generally a spectacle to see, with half the fans clad in orange and the other half in gold.

But the teams on the court this year are spectacles as well.  Both are highly ranked and combined, the two teams had dropped just one game between them. 

Because of the rivalry, the tradition, and the fact that both teams are highly ranked, tickets are hard to come by and currently going for around $200 to sit in the upper-bowl.

A lot is on the line for both Missouri and Illinois this weekend. Not only is pride at stake, but also a chance to notch a quality win and build the resume. 

Here is a complete breakdown of what to watch for when the Missouri Tigers and the Illinois Illini tip-off on Saturday evening.
