Columbia, Mo. Missouri coach Gary Pinkel said Monday that running back Tony Temple, who missed Saturday's loss at Oklahoma with a sprained ankle, was probable for this week's game against Texas Tech.
Temple is the leading rusher for the 15th-ranked Tigers with 351 yards, a 4.9-yard average and three touchdowns. Missouri was held to a season-low 57 yards rushing by Oklahoma, well below the previous low of 195 yards.
"He's our catalyst on the offense," Pinkel said. "He likes to run the football well and he does. That's definitely going to be a huge bonus to have him back."
