COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- Vince Young ran for 108 yards and a touchdown and threw for two other scores, and No. 2 Texas converted three turnovers by Missouri quarterback Brad Smith into touchdowns in beating the Tigers 51-20 Saturday.
The Longhorns (4-0, 1-0 Big 12) have now won 11 straight road games and 11 straight games overall. Jamaal Charles had one rushing and one receiving touchdown for Texas, which is 4-0 for the fourth time in five seasons and beat Missouri (2-2, 0-1) for the 14th time in 15 games.
Missouri, which entered the game fifth in the nation in total offense at 554 yards per game, had hoped to engage Texas in a shootout but was held to 330 yards and lost to a team ranked in the top five for the 28th straight time.
The Longhorns had plenty of offense, totaling 585 yards, to offset 135 yards in penalties, a fumble out of the end zone by Charles in the third quarter and a second-quarter drive that stalled at the Missouri 5.
Smith scored on a pair of short runs for Missouri, which stayed with Texas for much of the first half but was shut out after the break. The Longhorns led 14-13 after one quarter and then ran off 37 straight points before Smith scored again with 3:54 left.
Young, who scored on a 33-yard run in the first quarter, also had a 33-yard scramble on third-and-30 to set up a field goal that gave Texas a 24-13 lead near the end of the half. He has eight career 100-yard games, although this was his first of the season.
Charles, who has five touchdowns the last two games and had 97 yards on 15 carries, scored on Texas' first play of the game on a 3-yard run. That was set up by Aaron Harris' interception and return of a pass by Smith on Missouri's third play of the game. Smith fumbled on a sack later in the quarter and Young was untouched on a draw on the next play to put Texas ahead 14-7.
Smith's second fumble gave Texas the ball at the Missouri 22 early in the second quarter. After a holding call, Charles caught a 32-yard touchdown pass, backing into the end zone after turning around to make the reception.
Texas also got an 88-yard punt return from Aaron Ross, and showed Missouri it could score the traditional way, too. The Longhorns opened the second half with a six-play, 80-yard drive capped by Ramonce Taylor's one-handed grab of a swing pass and acrobatic dive into the end zone, his extended hand with the ball just inside the pylon for a 27-yard score that made it 31-13.
Henry Melton scored on a pair of 1-yard runs in the second half.
