Security will be heavier than usual at
Arrowhead Stadium for Saturday night's Missouri-Kansas football
game.

Stadium officials say more security officers will be positioned
on the field in hopes of keeping goalposts from being torn down by
fans after the game. The goalposts will be needed for Sunday's
Chiefs game against Oakland.

Kansas City police say the department's security contingent will
be about 30 percent higher than that provided for a Chiefs game.
Jackson County deputies and Missouri State Highway Patrol troopers
will also be working the game.

Beer sales will be shut off at halftime, just as they are for
Chiefs games played at night.

The Border Battle between KU and MU can be seen Saturday at 7 p.m. on KAKE.

KAKE News will have crews covering the border battle. Watch for;

  • Live reports from Kansas City Friday night at 6 & 10
