COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Year 2 in the SEC has been a huge success for Missouri. Now a major hurdle awaits.
The 14th-ranked and undefeated Tigers will try to keep it up against one of the nation's top defenses - minus their most indispensable player.
Redshirt freshman quarterback Maty Mauk makes his first career start in place of injured James Franklin Saturday against No. 22 Florida.
The Gators (4-2, 3-1 SEC) lost quarterback Jeff Driskel (broken leg) in mid-September, and three other starters are out for the season. The latest subtraction was running back Matt Jones, who underwent left knee surgery earlier this week.
