COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - No. 8 Missouri has its senior captain back at quarterback.
Coach Gary Pinkel said Monday that James Franklin will lead the eighth-ranked Tigers at Ole Miss this weekend after missing four starts with a sprained throwing shoulder.
The quarterback had been enjoying a career season through five games and positioned his team for a win at Georgia on Oct. 12 before he was hurt.
Missouri (9-1, 5-1 Southeastern Conference) went 3-1 with redshirt freshman Maty Mauk, who had thrown three career passes before relieving Franklin against the Bulldogs.
The Tigers play at Mississippi (7-3, 3-3) this week, needing to win both in Oxford and the following week at home against Texas A&M to capture the SEC East.
