COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Chase Daniel threw for 405 yards and four
touchdowns and No. 6 Missouri scored on its first 10 possessions
Saturday in a 69-17 win over Nevada.
Daniel was 23-for-28 and led Missouri (3-0) to seven touchdowns
and a field goal before exiting in the third quarter. His backups,
Chase Patton and Blaine Gabbert, led two more scoring drives before
Missouri was finally forced to punt late in the fourth quarter.
The Tigers gained 651 total yards and averaged 10 yards per
play. The 69 points tied a team record set against Kansas in 1969,
and they've scored 173 points in three games.
Nevada (1-2) fell for the second straight time to a Big 12
opponent after losing to Texas Tech a week ago.
