The GoodMissouri QB Maty Mauk. In his first college start the redshirt freshman threw for 295 YDS and 1 TD. Twenty two seconds into the game Mauk completed passes of 41 YDS and 20 YDS. The second pass lead to a 7-0 lead for the Tigers. Mauk completed 18 of 36 passes including three passes over 37 YDS. He capped the afternoon off with a 17 YD touchdown run in the 4th quarter. Missouri has had good QB play each week for the last 10 years starting with Brad Smith, Chase Daniel and Blaine Gabbert. James Franklin, who missed Saturday’s game with an injury, is just the latest in a line of good Missouri QB’s. Mauk’s play was on par. The BadFlorida’s overall effort. Maybe Florida overachieved last season. It seemed like they were competitive in almost every game. I know they lost QB Jeff Driskel for the year but even with Driskel at the helm Florida has been a major disappointment. Saturday was no better. The Gators had only 61 total YDS in the first half and finished with 151 total yards. The Florida defenses who, in my opinion, have the best DB’s in the nation gave up 500 YDS to an offense led by a redshirt freshman QB making his first ever start. The UglyFlorida’s offense.  Particularly their QB play. Tyler Murphy in for starting QB Jeff Driskel completed 15 out of 29 passes for a total of 151 YDS and 1 INT. Murphy held on to the ball too long and was very ineffective.  Murphy was also sacked three times because the line had a very hard time blocking the Missouri defensive line. Florida has 59 YDs rushing on 31 carries. This was an ugly offensive effort uncharacteristic of the Florida Gators.
