COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) – Blaine Gabbert threw for a 361 yards and three touchdowns and No. 21 Missouri remained undefeated with a 30-9 win over struggling Texas A&M on Saturday.
Gabbert connected with Wes Kemp for touchdowns in the first and third quarters to help the Tigers (6-0, 2-0 Big 12) improve to 6-0 for the fifth time in school history.
Missouri’s defense held quarterback Jerrod Johnson and Texas A&M’s spread offense in check for most of the game, harassing him into a 7-for-21 first half. Texas A&M (3-3, 0-2) finally got going in the fourth quarter, with Johnson throwing a 26-yard touchdown pass to Jeff Fuller, but it was much too late to avoid a third straight loss.
Gabbert’s third touchdown pass was a 20-yard strike to T.J. Moe that made it 30-3 in the third quarter. Moe finished with six receptions for 110 yards.
The Tigers got the ball in the second half after Johnson was sacked three times on Texas A&M’s first possession after halftime. Gabbert hit Kemp for his second touchdown on a 10-yard pass that pushed Missouri’s lead to 23-0.
