COLUMBIA, Mo. - The riddle that has been Missouri's stagnant offense this season has been tough to crack.

Through five games, Missouri's offensive totals are down drastically from a year ago.

But as the Tigers (3-2, 0-2 Southeastern Conference) embark on a stretch of five straight SEC games, the running game got a much needed boost of confidence last week.

Running back Kendial Lawrence broke out with 104 rushing yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 21-16 win against Central Florida.
