Drew Lock passes another SEC great in career passing yards

He probably won’t reach No. 1, but he’s all alone in second place now.

NCAA Football: Missouri at Tennessee Randy Sartin-USA TODAY Sports

Drew Lock is engineering a two-touchdown lead over Tennessee, and on the way, he just passed an SEC legend in career passing yards.

Lock is now in second-place overall, passing former Georgia QB David Greene on Missouri’s first third-quarter drive that ended in a short touchdown run by Larry Rountree.

Lock now has 11,574 (and counting) career passing yards. Lock passed Greene (11,528) on a 24-yard pass to Emanuel Hall.

Unless Missouri somehow figures to turn all the sliders down against Arkansas and a TBD opponent in the bowl, this is probably where Lock will end his career. Another former Georgia quarterback, Aaron Murray, leads the way with 13,166 passing yards.
