Columbia, Mo. Missouri didn't stop Chris Simms for long.
Simms passed for four touchdowns and ran for a fifth as No. 7 Texas recovered from a frustrating start to beat Missouri, 35-16, Saturday.
Simms has thrown 12 touchdown passes with one interception the last three weeks.
"My receivers have me confident that I can go to them when times get tough or when we need a big play," Simms said. "They did that again today."
Cedric Benson had 157 yards on 31 carries, his third straight 100-yard game. Texas (7-1, 4-1 Big 12) put together several lengthy drives, scoring after 10, 13 and 11 plays, after coming up empty on an 18-play march at the start of the game.
Texas controlled the ball for 39:22, nearly two-thirds of the game.
Texas has won 13 of its last 15 overall and has a six-game winning streak on the road. The Longhorns' defense, giving up 13 points a game, held its fifth straight opponent to fewer than 300 yards.
Zack Abron had 109 yards rushing on 13 carries and a touchdown for Missouri (3-4, 2-3), which has lost 42 in a row to Top 10 teams since 1980. Abron has three straight 100-yard games and four overall for the Tigers, who were outgained 421-244.
"We walk in this locker room and people are cheering, 'Great job, Missouri,"' MU coach Gary Pinkel said. "I hate that. That's how losers think."
Simms was 24-for-30 for 229 yards, with scoring passes to B.J. Johnson, Brock Edwards, Roy Williams and Brett Robin.
