James Franklin Listed As Starter On Latest Depth Chart

Franklin to start against Gators.
James Franklin quote about Ohio State.

James Franklin's MCL seems to be fine after his relief appearance on Saturday against Kentucky. Franklin was listed as doubtful going into the Homecoming game, but spelled a struggling Corbin Berkstresser in the second half.

Franklin is listed as the starter on the most recent depth chart for the Florida game this Saturday. Berkstresser is the backup and Maty Mauk stays on the depth chart as the third string quarterback. With Franklin's health and Berkstresser's inconsistent play, Mauk is listed in case of emergency. Mizzou has no intentions to play Mauk this season as it tries to preserve his red shirt.

It was announced Sunday that Mizzou plays Florida at 11 a.m. central time on ESPN2. Florida is coming off a heartbreaking loss to Georgia and the Gators dropped to No. 7 in the BCS standings.

The SEC released some TV times for November 10th games this morning. Mizzou will play Tennessee in two weeks at 11:21 a.m on SEC Network.
