Missouri fans planning to attend the school's homecoming parade next weekend might want to bring some coffee.

The Southeastern Conference set an 11 a.m. kickoff for Missouri's Oct. 27 homecoming game against Kentucky. That means a 7 a.m. start for the annual downtown parade. The match of two teams winless in conference play will be televised nationally on ESPNU.

Missouri (3-4, 0-4 SEC) has a bye this week after a 42-10 loss to No. 1 Alabama. Kentucky (1-6, 0-4) hosts No. 13 Georgia on Saturday.

The theme for this year's festival is "the influencing machine," and the four women picked parking meters as their chosen apparatuses. Ann Breidenbach, Jacquelyn Sandone, Barbie Reid and Elizabeth Bergman say they want to remind out-of-town filmgoers to watch out for parking tickets. KBIA's Harum Helmy bring us an audio postcard from this year's parade.
