"We're hoping we get it going offensively," Malzahn said. "When I look at (Missouri's) defense, their defensive front is disruptive. Coach Odom now has taken over the defense. How much different will it be from earlier in the season, or even last year?"
"Byron Cowart has come to me numerous times over the last couple of weeks disappointed with his playing time," Malzahn said. "(Monday) he came to me and said he wants to quit and pursue other opportunities. So we wish him nothing but the best moving forward."
