COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - David Blough passed for one touchdown and ran for another as Purdue dominated Missouri, 35-3 in a nonconference football battle Saturday.
The Boilermakers head into Big Ten Conference play just one win shy of last year's total. It's the fewest points allowed by Purdue (2-1) since a 59-0 win over Southeast Missouri State in 2011.
As usual, Purdue used a two-quarterback system, and both played well. David Blough completed 22 of 28 passes for 187 yards and one touchdown. Elijah Sindelar completed 4 of 6 passes for 85 yards and one touchdown. Tario Fuller carried 19 times for 90 yards and a score.
Purdue scored touchdowns on its first three drives and led 28-3 at halftime.
Missouri's listless performance was best illustrated by one series in the second quarter in which the Tigers committed penalties on four consecutive plays - three false starts and a holding infraction.
