Mizzou’s Drew Lock eyes breakout campaign after last year’s learning curves

Coming off a four-win sophomore campaign, Missouri quarterback Drew Lock recalls two games helped him develop a new mindset for 2017.

One resulted in the Tigers’ third straight loss against Georgia last September. Lock had set his conference single-game highs with three touchdowns and 376 yards, but also tossed three interceptions in a turnover heavy half, which aided the Bulldogs to a late comeback.

“You throw 330 yards in one half, you want to come out and possibly do the same thing (in the second half),” Lock said about the Georgia loss.

NOVEMBER 2015 – Drew Lock was thrust into the limelight as the Missouri starting quarterback ahead of schedule as a true freshman after junior Maty Mauk was suspended for violating team rules.

Mauk was reinstated in late October, but six days later coach Gary Pinkel suspended Mauk for the remainder of the season, leaving Lock firmly entrenched as the starting quarterback.

Mauk’s suspension has allowed Lock to garner valuable playing time in the Southeastern Conference, while most players are redshirted as a freshman.
