Missouri's starting defensive ends might be even better this year, Maty Mauk likes to throw the deep ball, the Mizzou defense needs to make big plays smaller, and Volleyball loses another tight match.

Besides one of Sasser's -- on a quick screen -- and Murphy's -- on a wheel route down the sideline -- Missouri's big gainers have come when it puts the ball in its quarterback's hands and just lets him gun it.

It's what Mauk likes to do. He had 13 completions of 25 yards or more in 68 total last year.

"It's all timing," Mauk said. "I did a lot of it in high school. I didn't have the talent I have out here now at receiver. It's just all timing. It's all stuff we can work on, and you get used to it quick. It's just something we'll continue to get better at, too."

Sasser and White have combined for 310 yards and five touchdowns on 14 catches.
