COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- The return of William Moore comes at a good time for Missouri, as the fourth-ranked Tigers prepare for their Big 12 opener at Nebraska.
Moore sprained a foot in the season-opening win over Illinois, then aggravated the injury in a 69-17 win over Nevada on Sept. 13th. He didn't play in Missouri's 42-21 win over Buffalo on Sept. 20th.
The Tigers had a bye last week, giving Moore an extra week to heal.
His return to the lineup is expected to help Missouri's defense that ranks 112th against the pass and 80th overall.
