The Missouri Tigers scored their biggest victory in SEC play, winning 41-26 at 7th ranked Georgia. But the win was tarnished by a separated right shoulder of quarterback James Franklin. The Tigers signal caller injured the same shoulder he had surgery on last year. Tigers Head Coach Gary Pinkel said after the game that Franklin would miss at least two weeks. Several national sources at the game think Franklin’s season is done, with a Bowl game return possible.

With the win, Mizzou became the first SEC school to become bowl eligible with their 6th win. Missouri is off to a 6-0 start after today’s victory. Before being injured in the 4th quarter, Franklin threw for one touchdown and passed for another. L’Damian Washington caught two touchdown passes. Marcus Murphy and Henry Josey ran for scores for Mizzou.
