COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Blaine Gabbert threw for three touchdowns and ran for another as Missouri used a trick play to score the first of its six consecutive TDs in a 52-12 victory over Furman on Saturday.

Gabbert completed 17 of 25 passes for 256 yards and tied his career high with three TD throws. He ran 40 yards for another score.

Missouri (3-0) scored its first touchdown on a 40-yard pass from receiver Danario Alexander to fellow wideout Jared Perry. The play started with a cross-field lateral from Gabbert to Alexander.

Perry added a 48-yard TD catch on the Tigers' next possession and set career highs with seven catches for 161 yards. Alexander also caught two TD passes.

Missouri led 42-0 at halftime before Furman (2-1) scored on a 21-yard pass from Jordan Sorrells to Tyler Maples.
