Franklin back as starting QB for Missouri

Technically, Missouri quarterback James Franklin came back two weeks ago against Kentucky. He played two fourth-quarter series — one ending with a fumble and the other on a punt — handing the ball off on all five snaps late in a 31-point blowout. Of course, Franklin’s true comeback won’t be until 6:45 p.m. Saturday, when he returns to the starting role as the eighth-ranked Tigers tussle with No. 24 Mississippi.
