It looks like a week off did Missouri some good. 

The Tigers head into the final two weeks of the season needing to win both of their final games to win the SEC East, starting with a road trip to face Ole Miss this weekend, and it looks like they'll have a familiar face back at quarterback. Missouri released its latest depth chart on Monday and it shows James Franklin at starting quarterback.

Franklin has missed the last four games after separating his shoulder in Missouri's 41-26 win over Georgia in mid-October. 

Maty Mauk has done a nice job in his place, throwing for 933 yards, 10 touchdowns and only two interceptions while leading Mizzou to a 3-1 mark without Franklin, but getting their senior starter back for these final two games is a big boost for the Tigers.

In his six games before the injury Franklin had thrown for 1,577 yards, 14 touchdowns and three interceptions while completing nearly 70% of his passes.
