Lock wants to end career on high note in regular-season finale

There’s only one way Drew Lock wants to walk off Faurot Field on Friday – with another victory.

The senior quarterback will play his final regular-season game for the Missouri Tigers as he closes out an illustrious career in the game against Arkansas.

Kickoff is set for 1:30 p.m. and the game will be televised by CBS.

Lock has led the Tigers to three consecutive wins and four victories in their last five games. That has pushed Missouri’s record to 7-4 and a win Friday likely would set up the Tigers for an invitation to either the Music City Bowl in Nashville or the Liberty Bowl in Memphis.

After starting the year 0-4 in the SEC, a win would also allow the Tigers to finish 4-4 in conference play.

The Tigers also will be trying to win their ninth consecutive game in November.

Over his last three games, wins over Florida, Vanderbilt and Tennessee, Lock has completed 67 of 95 passes for 760 yards and seven touchdowns en route to moving into second place all-time in SEC history for career passing yards.

Lock is one of nine seniors who will be playing their final game in Columbia.

Arkansas might not present much of a challenge for Lock’s finale. The Razorbacks have lost 10 consecutive SEC games and are coming off a 52-6 loss against Mississippi State.
