QB replacements in spotlight for Vols, Missouri

By  | 

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- No. 10 Missouri knows how it feels to lose a veteran quarterback to injury. Tennessee now knows, too.
Freshman Josh Dobbs will make his first career start this week for the Volunteers (4-4, 1-3 Southeastern Conference) at Missouri on Saturday.
The Tigers (7-1, 3-1) are coming off a tough overtime loss to South Carolina. They will again have redshirt freshman Maty Mauk at quarterback while James Franklin recovers from a shoulder injury.
