Franklin Looking to Bounce Back from 4-INT Loss

COLUMBIA (AP) -- James Franklin could hardly muster a smile following Missouri's loss at Florida, his normally jovial personality subdued by the feeling he had cost his team a chance to knock off the seventh-ranked Gators.

Days later, the junior quarterback still struggled to put the game, and his four interceptions, behind him. Franklin completed 24 of 51 passes, citing bad footwork and rushed passes for overthrowing several receivers.

Franklin says he needs to build up confidence after missing most of the Tigers' previous three games recovering from a strained medial collateral ligament in his left knee.

What's perhaps most frustrating for Franklin is that the offense had one of its best overall performances this season, running 86 plays and gaining 23 first downs against the nation's fifth-stingiest defense.
