ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Chase Daniel had 332 yards in total offense, and Missouri got a dominant effort from its defense in a 34-7 victory over Mississippi on Saturday.

Daniel ran for a 3-yard score and had a 20-yard touchdown pass in a strong follow-up to his first career start when he threw a school-record five touchdown passes against Division I-AA Murray State. Saturday's effort came against tougher competition, with Daniel going 24-for-40 for 243 yards and rushing for 89 yards on 13 carries.

Mississippi (1-1) managed 162 total yards, and quarterback Brent Schaeffer threw three interceptions. The Rebels were outgained 169-7 in the first quarter and surrendered 471 yards overall.

Missouri (2-0) scored on three of its first four drives in the first half and the first two possessions of the second half. The Tigers are 2-0 for the first time since 2003, after getting upset by New Mexico and Troy the previous two seasons.

Mississippi's lone score came after a turnover gave the Rebels possession in Missouri territory for the only time. Marcus Woods fumbled a punt return, and Charles Clark recovered at the 40. Two plays later, Schaeffer threw a 30-yard touchdown pass to Marshay Green with 1:50 left in the first half to cut the gap to 17-7.

Daniel accounted for all 80 yards on the Tigers' opening drive, going 6-for-6 for 50 yards and rushing four times for 30 yards. He busted a 25-yard run off a fake handoff and scored on a 3-yard run.

A 24-yard pass from Daniel to William Franklin set up a 22-yard field goal by Jeff Wolfert, and a punt downed at the 2 ended up giving Missouri favorable field position on a 43-yard drive capped by Woods' 1-yard run for a 17-0 lead.

Brad Ekwerekwu caught a 20-yard touchdown pass to cap Missouri's first drive of the second half, and backup quarterback Brandon Coleman had an 8-yard scoring run in the fourth quarter.

BenJarvus Green-Ellis had 69 yards on 16 carries for Mississippi, which had 240 yards rushing in its opening victory over Memphis. The Rebels totaled 72 yards on 28 carries on Saturday.
