KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Blaine Gabbert directed scoring drives on No. 15 Missouri's first two possessions and later scored on a 1-yard run himself, leading the Tigers to a 35-7 victory over Kansas on Saturday in the 119th renewal of college football's second-oldest rivalry.
De'Vion Moore scored two touchdowns for the Tigers (10-2, 6-2 Big 12), who drew 95 yards in penalties in the always-passionate border showdown but still dominated their archrivals. No. 16 Nebraska's victory over Colorado on Friday had made it impossible for the Tigers to finish higher than second in the Big 12 North.
The Jayhawks (3-9, 1-7) ended a miserable season in Turner Gill's first year as head coach and have lost 16 of 19 after opening 2009 with five straight wins.
Missouri rolled up 397 yards of total offense while recording the fourth 10-win season in its 119-year history and giving coach Gary Pinkel his 150th career win. The Tigers will go into the bowl season with losses only to Nebraska and Texas Tech on back-to-back weekends.
On Missouri's first possession, Gabbert hit T.J. Moe for 16 yards and then got 19 yards on a quarterback keeper to help set up Moore's 3-yard touchdown run. Moore also capped Missouri's day with a 5-yard touchdown run with 2:56 to play following Carl Gettis' interception of Quin Mecham.
The Tigers, ranked first in the Big 12 in scoring defense and sacks, took down Kansas quarterbacks five times and held the Jayhawks to just 141 total yards.
The Jayhawks finally got on the board after Bradley McDougald intercepted Gabbert's pass in the third quarter. Three times in the 13-play, 46-yard drive Webb converted third downs, including when he was forced out of the pocket on third-and 7 and scrambled 8 yards to the 3. James Sims scored on the next play, breaking a scoring drought of 100 minutes, 29 seconds for the Jayhawks.
That made it 21-7, but the Tigers came right back. Moe caught a 6-yard pass from Gabbert on third-and-5, then got open on the next play for a 37-yard run-and-catch to the 15. Gabbert finished the drive with a TD on a a 1-yard plunge.
Kansas' Jordan Webb was just 7 of 20 for 45 total yards. Gabbert was an efficient 16 of 26 for 179 yards.
After Kansas lost 19 yards on its first possession, the Tigers zipped 36 yards in six plays. Gabbert connected with Moe for 23 yards to the 2, then Moe scored on an end-around, becoming the eighth Missouri player with a rushing touchdown this year.
After Kansas failed on fourth-and-3 in the third quarter, Kendial Lawrence made it 21-0 with a 21-yard run.
