Pinkel shuffles lineup of 3-0 Missouri

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Coach Gary Pinkel is making a few changes in the lineup of his undefeated Missouri Tigers for their first road game of the season.

Beau Brinkley will start at tight end in place of Andrew Jones when Missouri (3-0) plays at Nevada on Friday night.

Brinkley says he was stunned on Monday to see he was being moved from long snapper. Jones has recorded six catches for 34 yards through the Tigers' first three games.

The other big change is at kick returner. Munir Prince will take over for safety Jasper Simmons, who has a bruised knee.
