Border War Champions. Again.

Tigers clinch 6th-straight Border War Series Championship
by Mizzou Matt
COLUMBIA, MO- The rivalry has been around since the 1850s, but since the 2002-03 athletic season, the University of Missouri and Kansas University have battled for the Border War/Showdown Series Championship. The Tigers won the first, by a tally of 32-8.5. The two schools flipped-flopped the next three, trading back and forth, each winning by narrower margins than the first year. Since then, Mizzou has been unflappable and the Series trophy has resided in Mizzou Arena since 2006-07.

With the Tiger softball team's three game sweep of Kansas last weekend, the Tigers have clinched their 6th-straight Border War/Showdown Series, and their 8th overall. Holding a 21-4 lead, there are only 15 points remaining in the season.

The clinch is for what will likely be the final in the Border War/Showdown Series. Year-by-year results, since 2002-03 inception:
2011-12: Mizzou 21-4 (as of March 21, with 15 points remaining)
2010-11: Mizzou 23-16
2009-10: Mizzou 23-16.5
2008-09: Mizzou 23-17
2007-08: Mizzou 24-15
2006-07: Mizzou 25-14
2005-06: Kansas 23-17
2004-05: Mizzou 22.5-17.5
2003-04: Kansas 21.5-18.5
2002-03: Mizzou 32-8.5
