MU tries again to offer student tailgating

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Student leaders at the University of Missouri-Columbia hope the latest effort to offer their classmates a spot to tailgate will go over better than its predecessor.

The Columbia Daily Tribune ( reported that the latest effort will be called The End Zone. It will be in the same lot where the school last year opened an unpopular tailgating spot called The Jungle.

Students said rules were part of the problem. No vehicles were allowed and student organizations had to reserve spaces ahead of time.

Like last year, hard alcohol and glass bottles won't be allowed, but beer in cans is OK.

Missouri Students Association president Eric Woods says underage students shouldn't drink, but officers won't be checking everyone's IDs.
