TOP STORIES:

FBC--WYOMING-MISSOURI

COLUMBIA, Mo. — Missouri's offense, lightning quick in 2017, took a slight pause in the season opener. A year ago, the Tigers ranked 129th nationally — second to last among FBS teams — in time of possession with an average of 25:01 per game as offensive coordinator Josh Heupel ran plays at a hectic pace. Last week in Missouri's 51-14 victory over Tennessee-Martin, first-year offensive coordinator Derek Dooley slowed things down and tried some new looks for quarterback Drew Lock and Co. A challenge could come Saturday when Missouri (1-0) hosts Wyoming (1-1). The Cowboys last year led the nation with a plus-24 turnover margin. By Charlie Clarke. SENT: 660 words. AP Photos.
