Drew Lock made his second start for Missouri in place of Maty Mauk, who is suspended indefinitely for violating team rules. He completed 16 of 39 passes for 151 yards, but threw two interceptions, including one that was returned 40 yards by Jalen Tabor for a touchdown in a 21-3 loss on Homecoming to the Florida Gators.
“(Drew) shouldn’t have thrown it into that coverage,” Missouri coach Gary Pinkel said of the interception. “It’s not going to be the first or last interception. That’s a young guy. He’ll get better.”

Florida’s defense has not allowed a touchdown its last two games. Lock said they gave him different looks.
“That’s the first time I’ve played against a true defense like that,” Lock said. “It was a little different than I’ve ever seen.”
The Gators led the SEC in sacks entering the game, dropped Drew three times.
