Tulsa breezes past Rice 27-10

Oct 4, 2009 - 3:29 AM HOUSTON(AP) -- G.J. Kinne completed 21 of his 32 passes and threw a 39-yard touchdown to A.J. Whitmore in the fourth quarter to lead Tulsa to a 27-10 victory over the winless Rice Owls Saturday night.

Jamad Williams had 14 carries for 72 yards, including a 6-yard touchdown in the first quarter as the Golden Hurricane improved to 4-1 on the season and 2-0 in Conference USA.

Damaris Johnson caught seven passes for 85 yards as Tulsa tied its all-time series with Rice. Each team has won seven times and there was one tie.

Ryan Lewis completed just 12 of his 32 passes for 99 yards and a touchdown, and Charles Ross led the Owls (0-5, 0-2) with 33 yards on 13 carries.

Lewis found tight end Taylor Wardlow with a 29-yard pass in the back of the end zone to tie the game at 7-7 after Williams' early TD. Rice went ahead on a Clark Fangmeier field goal late in the second quarter, but before the half ended Kevin Fitzpatrick kicked a field goal that allowed Tulsa to tie the game at 10-10.

Kinne put Tulsa ahead for good midway through the third quarter with a 6-yard touchdown run.

The Golden Hurricane defense has not allowed a rushing TD this season.
