COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) Missouri quarterback James Franklin, who struggled with injuries and ineffectiveness his junior season, will have to beat out two challengers for the job in fall practice.
Coach Gary Pinkel said after the annual Black and Gold game Saturday that he'd announce a pecking order for quarterback and every other position next week. He said Franklin had his best spring with the team, but said sophomores Maty Mauk and Corbin Berkstresser also had good springs.
"Competition is good," Pinkel said. "It's great to me that it goes right into August."
