Sedalia's News Leader 1050 KSIS is your home for the Mizzou Tigers in Sedalia. We'll have the opening game of the season Thursday night August 31. While Learfield Sports has not announced a broadcast time at this point in the summer, I would expect their broadcast to begin with pre-game programming at about 5:00 PM. 1050 KSIS will carry all Mizzou Football games, except those which conflict with St. Louis Cardinals baseball games. Of the football games where a start time has been announced, the only conflict with Cardinals baseball is the game on Saturday, September 9.
