It’s no surprise, but Drew Lock will be behind center for a second consecutive season. It will be worth following his development under new offensive coordinator Josh Heupel, who’s looking to bring life to the Tigers’ offense, which was one of the worst in the nation last year. The bar is low there.
Ish Witter and Alex Ross, a graduate transfer from Oklahoma, are listed as co-top options at running back. Both will be relied upon to help revive a ground game that struggled mightily in Gary Pinkel’s final season last year.
This will be a season of discovery for the Tigers under first-year coach Barry Odom. There are many things to learn about Missouri in this new era for the program.
The Tigers start with a road matchup against West Virginia on Saturday.
