Tulsa blows out Houston, 41-7

HOUSTON — Tulsa's defense set the tone while the offense got on track in the second quarter as the Golden Hurricane cruised to a 41-7 victory over Houston in front of 25,827 fans at Robertson Stadium on Saturday night. It was the second straight time that Tulsa defeated Houston on the Cougars home field.

Tulsa improved to 8-2 overall and 6-0 in Conference USA action. The Hurricane closes out the home season next week against the C-USA West Division leading UCF Knights in a game that will have major C-USA Championship implications. Tulsa is 8-2 for the first time since the 2008 campaign.

The Tulsa defense forced four turnovers, while the offense compiled over 500 yards and a whopping possession time advantage by nearly 15 minutes. Tulsa rushed for 350 yards and passed for another 155 yards for 505 yards of total offense and a 5.5-yard average per play. A balanced rushing attack was led by Ja'Terian Douglas' 87 yards, followed by Alex Singleton with 79 Zack Langer with 68, Trey Watts with 57 and quarterback Cody Green with 31. Green also completed 17-of-31 passes for 130 yards.

Dexter McCoil, Dwight Dobbins and Cory Dorris each intercepted passes for the Hurricane, while the Tulsa defense had six tackles for -29 yards and three quarterback sacks for -24 yards.

After scoring just three points in the first quarter, the Hurricane tallied two one-yard touchdown runs in the second quarter to take a 17-0 lead into halftime.

Tulsa took the second half kickoff 75 yards in nine plays, as Green ran in from one-yard out to put Tulsa ahead 24-0 taking 3:26 off the third quarter clock. The Hurricane didn't score again until the first drive in the fourth quarter when Green went over from one-yard out again to give Tulsa a 31-0 lead. The drive took 4:58 off the clock and covered 66 yards in 12 plays.

Daniel Schwarz added his second field goal of the game with a 24-yarder at the 9:13 mark of the fourth quarter to put Tulsa ahead 34-0. The score capped a 44-yard, eight play drive that took 3:34 off the clock on a possession led by back-up quarterback Kalen Henderson.

  • DSC_0114web.jpg SOCCER: JV Lady Zebras edge Verdigris, 2-1

    Claremore sophomore forward Brylee Brasher may have felt a little out of position Monday night during the junior varsity game against Verdigris.
    Normally, starting in the goal for the Lady Zebras varsity team, Brasher came out of her comfort zone to start at forward for the Claremore JV.
    The position switch proved to be a great decision for head coach Robin Sutherland, as Brasher showed a tenacity on offense that led to Claremore’s 2-1 win over Verdigris.
