Mizzou continues to have battle for 2 starting offensive line spots
The Missouri Tigers came into the 2019 season needing to replace two starters along the offensive line — Paul Adams and Kevin Pendleton.
Heading into the year, they had Hyrin White at right tackle and Larry Borom at left guard, but that changed on Saturday against SEMO.
Case Cook and Bobby Lawrence started in those spots in Week 3, and OC Derek Dooley says the competition continues heading into a Week 4 matchup vs. South Carolina (via STLToday.com):
“We just have a lot of competition at the right tackle and the left guard positions,” offensive coordinator Derek Dooley said. “We’re going to keep playing guys that are deserving of time and eventually, if one of them plays their way into the full-time role then they’ll take it over.”
Mizzou’s offensive line has been a strength in past years, but it has gotten off to a slower start in 2019.
Will Cook and Lawrence start on Saturday? Will White and Borom get their jobs back? Or, will we see a mix-and-match situation? We’ll find out on Saturday afternoon.
