After a less than impressive offensive performance in Saturday's 17-6 win against Miami, most of the attention was turned to first-year starting quarterback James Franklin.

But Missouri coach Gary Pinkel was worried less about Franklin's performance and more about his team's lack of execution at times.

It's execution, he said, that has to be better today as the Tigers (1-0, No. 21 AP) travel to the desert for a 9:30 p.m. kickoff (ESPN-TV) against Arizona State.
