McCoy, No. 3 Texas rout Missouri 41-7

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Colt McCoy completed his first 11 passes and produced touchdowns on No. 3 Texas' first three drives, helping to put Missouri away early in a 41-7 victory on Saturday night.

McCoy matched his season best with three touchdown passes, 2 of them to Jordan Shipley, while Texas' defense blocked a punt for a score in a nearly flawless first half that produced a 35-7 lead.

The Longhorns (7-0, 4-0 Big 12) beat Missouri for the sixth straight time and Blaine Gabbert was held to 84 yards passing and a touchdown before getting pulled late in the third quarter.

The Tigers (4-3, 0-3) have opened conference play with three straight losses for the first time since 2002 and by a combined score of 95-36 although the toughest stretch of the season by far is over with Missouri at Colorado (2-5) next week.
