Mizzou Backup QB James Franklin Comes In For Blaine Gabbert

Mizzou backup QB James Franklin came in for QB Blaine Gabbert in the fourth quarter against Colorado on Saturday night.

Gabbert had been banged up a little earlier in the game so it's unclear if he was given an early break or if he was injured.

Mizzou lead 19-0 at the time. Franklin came in and lead Mizzou to another touchdown -- Michael Egnew's second touchdown reception -- giving them a 26-0 lead.

We'll see what's up with Gabbert. Mizzou's defense has been playing very well so it's possible they just took the cautious route and sat Gabbert with the game (nearly) in hand.
