Can you tell me why the Kansas-Missouri football game was moved from the traditional last game of the season?

Tradition flew out the window when Kansas University and the University of Missouri became members of the Big 12 Conference, and schedules were adjusted in an attempt to maximize revenue. Big 12 officials believed the KU-MU game would draw more fans if it were played on a date that promised warmer weather. The last KU-MU game played on the final Saturday of the regular season was in 1996.
