Missouri Tigers Reinstate QB Maty Mauk After Four Weeks

David Blair/Icon Sportswire

According to reports, the Missouri Tigers have reinstated junior quarterback Maty Mauk after a four-week suspension.

Dave Matter of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch confirmed the news, but also passed on that he’s not sure how Mauk being available once-again impacts the Tigers quarterback situation. Right now, Matter said he’s “hearing conflicting things” about the Tigers’ depth chart at quarterback.

Either way, having Mauk back on the depth chart does give Missouri head coach Gary Pinkel some options, and they’re options he may be wise to look at considering the fact that Mizzou is 1-3 in its last four games: Beating South Carolina 24-10, Losing to Florida 21-3, losing to Georgia 9-6 and losing to Vanderbilt 10-3.

Freshman Drew Lock has been Missouri’s quarterback in the absence of Mauk, and while he did show good promise in the win over South Carolina—completing 21-of-28 passes for 136 yards and two touchdowns—he hasn’t thrown a touchdown in the past three games. He did throw two interceptions against Florida.

Mauk was originally suspended on September 29th for a violation of  team policies.

In the four games he’s played this season for the Tigers (helping Mizzou jump out to a 3-1 start, mind you) the junior threw for 646 yards, six touchdowns and four interceptions.

In the past three seasons for Missouri, Mauk has thrown for 4,373 yards, 42 touchdowns and 19 interceptions. He’s also rushed for 737 yards and four scores on the ground.
