Sam, Mauk Win SEC Weekly Honors

The Missouri Tigers football team jumped to number five in the Bowl Championship Series rankings behind some stellar play of defensive end Michael Sam and quarterback Maty Mauk last weekend against the Florida Gators. Sam took home SEC defensive player of the week honors after recording three sacks. Mauk won SEC freshman of the week honors after throwing for 295 yards against the league's number one defense. Missouri hosts South Carolina Saturday for homecoming.
