College Football, Mizzou vs. Illinois: Tigers Will Face Banged-Up Illini Secondary

The Missouri Tigers offense is among the best in the country. QB Blaine Gabbert had an impressive campaign in 2009 and they figure to repeat that in 2010.

Their mission to be an offensive force got a little easier in game on when Illinois lost two starters for the game.

CB Terry Hawthorne will miss the game with a foot injury. S Supo Sanni, another starter, tore his Achilles' and is done for the year.

So how will Illinois replace them?

Gabbert's probably glad to hear that it'll be a Justin Green stepping into fulfill at least part of Hawthorne's absence. Green converted from running back last week. As if that weren't enough, Jack Ramsey is converting from receiver to corner to help out.

You think Mizzou is glad to hear this news?

We may be heading to another shoot out like Mizzou's 52-42 victory in 2008.
