Post-DIspatch: Mizzou's Lock puts progress on display

Lock’s fifth and final touchdown was an act of faith he never would have tried last year. From the Eastern Michigan 13-yard line, tight end Kendall Blanton lined up in the backfield as a fullback but tripped just as he crossed the line of scrimmage and tumbled to the turf. Lock didn’t flinch.

"We made a little eye contact when he was on the ground," the quarterback said. "When he saw I was still looking at him he got up pretty quick and I was like, all right, I’m going to back up and chuck this bad boy up to the big guy."

Blanton got to his feet and snagged Lock’s toss for his first career touchdown.

The Trib (Blake Toppmeyer): EMU-MU rewind: Game balls, grades and key plays

After an opening week in which Lock locked in on J’Mon Moore, he spread the ball around beautifully against EMU. Lock, who enjoyed good protection, stood in the pocket comfortably and didn’t show any of the happy feet we saw at times last year. SEC defenses will pose a different challenge, but fans have to be encouraged by Lock’s latest performance. Lock said that after Wednesday’s practice, he told his teammates he was going to go for Missouri’s single-game passing records Saturday. He made a valiant attempt. He now shares the passing touchdown record with Chase Daniel and Maty Mauk and ranks third in single-game passing yards behind Jeff Handy (480, 1992) and Blaine Gabbert (468, 2009).

The Trib: Former MU All-American Conrad Hitchler dies

Hitchler lettered at Missouri from 1960-62. He earned All-America honors on defense as a senior then went on to play in the East-West Shrine Game, the Hula Bowl and the Coaches All-America Game. Hitchler led Missouri in receiving in 1961, and he was an All-Big Eight selection in both 1961 and ’62. He was inducted into the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame in 2013.

In Hitchler’s junior year, the Tigers went 7-2-1 and finished 11th in the final polls. In his senior year, they beat Georgia Tech 14-10 in the Bluebonnet Bowl in Houston and finished with an 8-1-2 record and No. 12 ranking.

Hitchler played three years in the Canadian Football League as a member of the Calgary Stampeders.
