Missouri travels on the road to take on Central Florida in search for their third win.
The Missouri Tigers head out on the road to take on the Central Florida Knights on Saturday in what will be the first ever matchup between these two teams. Central Florida is fresh of a 31-20 win over Florida International, while Missouri is trying to regroup after falling 31-20 against South Carolina.
Central Florida gets back running back Latavius Murray back in the lineup after missing the last two games with a shoulder injury. He is a player that Missouri will need to look out for, because in Murray's only game this year he rushed for 108 yards and scored a touchdown against Akron.
Missouri is looking to continue the trend of not falling into losing streaks, in their past seven games following a lost they have ended up winning six of those. In order to do so, the Tigers need quarterback James Franklin to play well. However Franklin's confidence is shot ever since he suffered his shoulder injury, and he is not trusting his arm to make certain throws.
