(AP)-- Missouri license plates won't be sporting Kansas Jayhawks logos anytime soon if the Missouri House has its way.

The House approved an amendment to a higher education bill
Tuesday allowing only Missouri schools to be featured on license
plates, unless the Missouri Legislature gives its approval.

An effort to create a University of Kansas specialty plate in Missouri began a year ago, well before the University of Missouri bolted the Big 12 Conference for the SEC. The move ends the historic Jayhawk-Tigers rivalry.

The amendment's sponsor, Democrat Stephen Webber, says he'll remove his amendment or seek to repeal it if Kansas challenges
Missouri to a football or basketball game next school year.

A specialty plate Pittsburg State University in southeastern
Kansas has been approved in Missouri. It was not immediately clear
what would happen to that plate.
