HOOVER, Ala. (AP) - Missouri made a surprising run to the top of the Southeastern Conference's Eastern Division in just its second year in the league.
Staying on top might be even more of a challenge.
The Tigers lost a huge chunk of their team after finishing 12-2 last season, including 7-1 in the SEC. Only nine starters return, including just four on offense.
But new starting quarterback Maty Mauk was confident during Missouri's appearance at SEC Media Days on Wednesday. He said others may feel it's a rebuilding year, but ''we know what we have.''
Mauk earned quite a bit of experience last season when starter James Franklin went down with an injury, making four starts and throwing for 1,071 yards, 11 touchdowns and just two interceptions.
