Ja'Terian Douglas leads Tulsa past UTEP, 33-11
TULSA 33, UTEP 11

TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- Ja'Terian Douglas had an 81-yard touchdown
run and finished with 128 yards on 13 carries to help Tulsa rout
UTEP 33-11 on Thursday night for its sixth straight victory.



Alex Singleton added 96 yards and two touchdowns to tie the
Tulsa career record for rushing TDs with 32, and Cody Green was
13 of 22 for 198 yards for the Golden Hurricane (6-1, 4-0
Conference USA).



Leslie Jordan led UTEP (1-6, 0-3) with 10 catches for 218 yards
and a touchdown. Carson Meger was 16 of 23 for 257 yards with a
touchdown and an interception in relief of the injured Nick
Lamaison.



Up 6-3 at the half, Tulsa outscored UTEP 20-0 in the third
quarter. Singleton scored on a 1-yard run, Douglas added his
81-yarder, and Shawn Jackson made it 26-3 with a 17-yard fumble
return.



"We just encouraged them to execute a little better and finish
drives," Tulsa coach Bill Blankenship said about the team's
halftime adjustments. "We got in there twice and had to kick
field goals offensively. We were playing well on defense. We
were playing a little soft early on, and we just had to stay the
course and play with a little more passion. We were playing and
executing, but not playing with a passion, and that was really
my encouragement at halftime."



UTEP ended a 10-quarter touchdown drought with Meger's 61-yard
pass to Leslie with 11:06 left. Singleton countered with a
10-yard scoring run to tie the school rushing TD record set by
Michael Gunter in 1980-83 and matched by Tarrion Adams in
2005-08.



"The thing about Alex is, he has now, to me, inserted himself in
the three-man rotation as opposed to just being a guy that we
needed at certain times," Blankenship said. "He really has
become a force for us. It has given us a whole different
dimension that's kind of like throwing a curveball or a
change-up."



DeAundre Brown had 14 tackles for Tulsa and Hurricane defense
forced three turnovers and had 10 tackles for loss and six
sacks. Tulsa is 16-1 in its last 17 conference games.
