ST. LOUIS (RNN) - No. 23 Missouri is looking to remain undefeated and continue its winning streak in the annual Braggin' Rights game against Illinois in St. Louis on Saturday.

The Tigers (10-0) are coming off a 66-60 win over Western Michigan last week - their narrowest margin of victory this season. Jordan Clarkson leads Mizzou with an average 19.4 points per game, with Jabari Brown not far behind with an average 19 points per game.

The Illini (9-2) are coming off a loss at No. 15 Oregon last week. Rayvonte Rice leads Illinois with an average 17.7 points per game. Tracy Abrams comes in a distant second with 11.5 points per game.

Illinois currently leads the Braggin' Rights series 20-12, but Mizzou has won the last four matchups. This is the first game since 2009 that Illinois is not ranked going into the Braggin' Rights game.

Tipoff at the Scottrade Center is at 5:30 p.m. ET and will air on ESPN2.
