Missouri football vs. Arizona State SATURDAY

Gary Pinkel’s squad will be looking to bounce back from last week’s not-so-memorable indoctrination into the world of SEC football when Arizona State rolls into town for a 6 p.m. game at Faurot Field. The Tigers’ road loss to the Sun Devils in Week 2 last year kicked off a 1-3 stretch that the team was never really able to bounce back from. This year’s version will be played in Columbia, though, and comes a week before the Tigers return to SEC action, traveling to Columbia, S.C., for a matchup with eighth-ranked South Carolina.

Kansas City HBA Fall Home Show FRIDAY THROUGH SUNDAY

The fall edition of the Home Builders Association of Greater Kansas City’s home show kicks off this weekend at the Overland Park Convention Center. More than 200 exhibitors will be on hand to offer guidance and ideas on design, decorating and more, and HGTV stars Vern Yip and Jennifer Bertrand will be the weekend’s featured guests. The show runs 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday. Adult tickets are $7 at the door or $6 in advance. Go to kchba.org for more information.

“The Motherf**ker With the Hat” WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY

The Tony-nominated production recently ended a run on Broadway and now hits Kansas City for a collection of shows at the Unicorn Theatre. The play follows a dysfunctional couple, Jackie and Veronica, and the madness that ensues when Jackie, recently released from prison, assumes his grade-school sweetheart is having an affair when he finds a curious hat in her apartment. The production, which opens the Unicorn’s 2012-13 season, runs through Sept. 30, with performances every day but Mondays. Tickets run from $27.50 to $32.50 at unicorntheatre.org.

Author Joe Posnanski discusses ‘Paterno’ WEDNESDAY

No yet-to-be-released sports book received as much attention this summer as Posnanski’s “Paterno,” which was intended to be a biography of longtime Penn State football coach Joe Paterno before a horrific sexual abuse scandal resulted in Paterno’s firing late last year. Despite the scandal, and Paterno’s death in January, publisher Simon & Schuster decided to move the book’s release up by nearly a year, to coincide with the start of the 2012 college football season. Posnanski, a former sports columnist at The Star, will sit down with Rainy Day Books founder and president Vivien Jennings for a one-hour discussion beginning at 7 p.m. at Unity Temple on the Plaza.
