NORMAN, Okla. — Oklahoma wasn't going to let it happen again.
A year after Missouri upset the top-ranked Sooners in Columbia, the Tigers could not maintain an early double-digit advantage and lost 38-28 to Oklahoma, which is again ranked No. 1 in the country.
The Tigers (2-2) led 14-3 nine minutes into the game after quarterback James Franklin ran for one touchdown and threw another to receiver L'Damian Washington. But Oklahoma (3-0) responded, scoring 28 consecutive points and subduing any fears that Missouri might produce another upset.
Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones threw for 448 yards and three touchdowns, all to receiver Ryan Broyles, who ended with 145 yards.
For Missouri, Franklin finished with 291 passing yards and 90 rushing yards, and receiver T.J. Moe had 119 yards. Henry Josey led all runners with 133 yards.
