COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Missouri quarterback Maty Mauk is expected to start again this week in place of an injured James Franklin.
Coach Gary Pinkel said Monday that Franklin is questionable but he will be evaluated again Thursday. Franklin sprained his shoulder Oct. 12 at Georgia and Pinkel said two days later he expected the quarterback to be out 3-5 weeks.
Mauk, a redshirt freshman, has completed 43 of 89 passes for 730 yards and five touchdowns since relieving Franklin three weeks ago. His 114 rushing yards Saturday helped No. 9 Missouri (8-1, 4-1 Southeastern Conference) defeat Tennessee, 31-3.
The Tigers travel to face Kentucky (2-6, 0-4) this week.
