Missouri suspends backup DL Burge for game

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri defense will be without reserve lineman Jimmy Burge for Saturday's homecoming game against No. 3 Texas.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reported Wednesday that the redshirt freshman player is serving a 1-game suspension for undisclosed disciplinary reasons. Burge usually backs up senior nose tackle Jaron Baston.

Junior Bart Coslet moved up the Tigers' depth chart to take Burge's place.
