Tulsa blows out Houston, 41-7


HOUSTON — On the subsequent possession, Tulsa defensive end Cory Dorris intercepted Houston's first pass from scrimmage and raced into the end zone for a 41-0 Tulsa lead and Dorris' first-ever career interception and touchdown.

Houston avoided a shutout on a 16-yard touchdown pass from Crawford Jones to Ryan Jackson after they took over possession on the Hurricane 34-yard line after Tulsa's Conner Floyd fumbled the punt. The Houston score came with 7:08 on the game clock.

After a rather lackluster first quarter, Tulsa put the first points on the scoreboard when Schwarz kicked a 29-yard field goal with 0:06 left in the first 15 minutes of the contest. The field goal capped a seven-play, 24-yard drive.

After one quarter, Tulsa had 96 yards of total offense, while Houston gained 88 yards.

Singleton scored his 36th career rushing touchdown when he scored from one-yard out to put Tulsa ahead 10-0 following the PAT at the 9:17 mark of the second quarter. Singleton's run capped a seven-play, 53-yard drive covering 2:47.

Singleton added his second TD of the game for a 17-0 lead when he scored from one-yard out with 0:24 remaining in the first half. The Hurricane drive took 5:52 off the clock and covered 90 yards in 17 plays.

At intermission, Tulsa held a slight 221 to 190-yard edge in total offense, while the Hurricane gained 120 yards on the ground and 101 yards passing. Houston had 76 yards rushing and 114 passing yards.

Tulsa will return to H.A. Chapman Stadium next Saturday for a Conference USA East-West Showdown against the East Division-leading UCF Knights at 11 am. The game is a nationally televised game on FOX Sports Network.
