Missouri's Corbin Berkstresser Says 1st Career Start Was 'Exhilarating'

With James Franklin out thanks to an injury, the Missouri Tigers started freshman quarterback Corbin Berkstresser in his place against the Arizona State Sun Devils on Saturday. He had a decent first game, going 21 of 41 for 198 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions as the Tigers managed to hold onto a 24-20 win.

Talking after the game, he expressed his delight at getting his first start with the Tigers:

"It's exhilarating. It's the kind of thing you think about when you sign your letter of intent. Playing in front of a full crowd like that, in front of Mizzou Nation, it was awesome. It was great to get a win for this team, and everybody that works hard for this program.

In that same press conference he spoke about the help that he received from James Franklin during the course of the win:

"He helped me a lot tonight. Every time I came to the sideline he was there to help me, whether it was my footwork or telling me what to watch out for, he was there. With me and him it's sort of a race to see who can help each other first."
