Insight Bowl, Missouri Vs. Iowa: Gary Pinkel, Kirk Ferentz Unlikely To Play Again

The Missouri Tigers and Iowa Hawkeyes haven't played in 100 yards and while it seems unlikely we'd go another 100 without them playing it doesn't sound like they'll be facing each other any time soon following the Insight Bowl Tuesday evening on ESPN.

Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz was asked about playing Mizzou in the future and cited the new conference and their game against Iowa State as reasons that's unlikely to happen.

The likelihood of that has probably diminished now at the expansion of the conference. I don't know this, but I wouldn't be surprised if we end up playing nine conference games somewhere near in the future, which would affect the way things proceed here on out. The other part is that we're locked in with Iowa State with an annual ball game, too. So I think that really kind of minimizes things on top of it.

Things could change -- such as Bowl games -- but we shouldn't be expecting a series from these two sides anytime soon.

Missouri and Iowa meet Tuesday night in the Insight Bowl in Tempe, Arizona. The game will be televised on ESPN at 9:00 p.m. (central).
