Mitch Morse injury: Missouri center out against Alabama with strained MCL

Dak Dillon-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Mitch Morse will miss Saturday's game, when the Missouri Tigers play host to the top-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide.

Missouri will be looking to notch their first-ever victory in the SEC on Saturday, but they'll certainly have their work cut out for them. Per Gabe DeArmond, Missouri Tigers center Mitch Morse is going to miss Saturday's game against the top-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide with a strained MCL:

Gary Pinkel said James Franklin and Mitch Morse are out for sure at least next week with strained MCLs. Berkstresser will start vs Bama.

Alabama is not only the defending BCS champions, but they're also currently the nation's top-ranked team, and easily appear to be the class of college football this season.

As you'd expect, Alabama is led by their dominant defense. So far in 2012, the Crimson Tide have surrendered just seven points per game to opponents. With Missouri's offense line weakened, it could be a long day for the Tigers' offense.

Kickoff between Alabama and Missouri is set for 2:30 p.m. ET on Saturday.
