NORMAN, OK (AP) - Landry Jones threw for 448 yards and three touchdowns to Ryan Broyles, leading top-ranked Oklahoma back from a rare home deficit to beat Missouri 38-28 on Saturday night.

With two starting receivers out of the lineup, Broyles had to play up to his usual All-American standard without proven sidekicks. Kenny Stills, who caught the go-ahead touchdown in a win at then-No. 5 Florida State last week, was out with a head injury and Trey Franks is suspended indefinitely.

The Tigers (2-2, 0-1 Big 12) pounced early to take a 14-3 first-quarter lead, breaking a streak of 20 straight home games in which Oklahoma (3-0, 1-0) never trailed. It didn't last long,though.

The Sooners roared back with 28 straight points to avenge a loss in Columbia last year when they were first in the BCS standings and move their home winning streak to 38 straight games.
