KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee coach Butch Jones remembers when he thought he might be coaching Missouri quarterback Maty Mauk instead of trying to stop him.
Jones recruited Mauk during his stint as Cincinnati's coach. Mauk was a record-setting quarterback at Kenton (Ohio) High School, about 130 miles northeast of Cincinnati. His older brother Ben had played for Cincinnati.
Mauk signed with Missouri, where he's now a redshirt freshman. Jones left Cincinnati for Tennessee last December. They'll reunite Saturday when Tennessee (4-4, 1-3 SEC) plays at No. 10 Missouri (7-1, 3-1).
Mauk has started Missouri's last two games in place of James Franklin, who sprained his right shoulder Oct. 12 in a 41-26 victory over Georgia. Missouri coach Gary Pinkel says Franklin is questionable for Saturday's game.
