Mizzou improved to 6-0 for the fifth time in school history with a 30-9 win over Texas A&M in College Station Saturday.
Blaine Gabbert threw for 361 yards, a season high, and three touchdowns while completing 31 of 47 passes with no interceptions. While T.J. Moe led Mizzou with 110 receiving yards on six catches, Wes Kemp (10 catches, 89 yards, two touchdowns) and Michael Egnew (10 catches, 87 yards) were Gabbert’s two primary targets.
Mizzou’s defense stymied Jerrod Johnson and the Aggie offense, holding A&M out of the end zone until a Jeff Fuller touchdown reception in the fourth quarter. It was the first touchdown Mizzou’s first-team defense allowed since a fourth-quarter touchdown run by San Diego State’s Ronnie Hillman Sept. 21.
