KANSAS CITY, Mo. — James Franklin rebounded from three early interceptions to toss two second-half touchdown passes, and Missouri rallied for a 24-10 victory over Kansas on Saturday in what could be the final edition of the 120-year-old Border War rivalry.
The Tigers (7-5, 5-4 Big 12) head to the SEC next season, and Kansas has said it has no intention of playing Missouri out of conference.
Missouri improved its bowl prospects by winning its third straight game to finish the regular season, doing so with coach Gary Pinkel back on the sideline. He was suspended for last week's come-from-behind win over Texas Tech following a drunken-driving arrest.
On the other sideline was Turner Gill, who may have coached his final game for Kansas (2-10, 0-9).
Gill is just 5-19 in two seasons in charge, and 10 straight losses to finish this season — many in lopsided fashion — may have sealed his fate.
