Tulsa, OK (Sports Network) - Ja'Terian Douglas and Alex Singleton combined for 224 yards rushing to lead the Tulsa Golden Hurricane to a 33-11 win over the Texas-El Paso Miners in a Conference USA bout at H.A. Chapman Stadium.

Texas-El Paso (1-6, 0-3) got 119 yards on 11-for-19 passing from Nick Lamaison before he came off after injuring his hamstring in the third quarter. Carson Meger took over and completed 16-of-23 passes for 257 yards and a touchdown but also had two costly turnovers. It didn't matter who was throwing to Jordan Leslie, who caught 10 passes for 218 yards and a touchdown. The Miners have lost four straight.

After a 12-play, 67-yard drive stalled out on Tulsa's first drive, the Golden Hurricane settled for a 31-yard field goal from Daniel Schwarz to take a 3-0 lead.

UTEP also had a drive end with a field goal when Steven Valadez connected on a 19-yard attempt that capped off an 11-play, 80-yard drive and evened the score 3-3.

Yet another long drive by Tulsa failed to result in a touchdown when Schwarz nailed a 25-yard field goal to finish off a 19-play, 76-yard drive that took 7:35 off the clock.

Tulsa finally found the end zone on its first drive of the second half when Singleton scored on a one-yard run.

The Miners failed to capitalize on an 11-play, 82-yard drive when Meger was intercepted in the end zone on 4th-and-goal from the three-yard line.

The turnover setup an 81-yard touchdown run by Douglas. After a failed extra point attempt the Golden Hurricane led 19-3.

Meger turned the ball over again, this time fumbling the ball which was then scooped up and returned 17 yards for a touchdown by Tulsa's Shawn Jackson. After the return Tulsa's lead ballooned to 26-3.

A 61-yard touchdown pass from Meger to Leslie put an end to the Tulsa scoring run. After a successful two-point conversion the Miners trailed 26-11.

Singleton ran into the end zone from 10 yards out on Tulsa's next possession to secure the win.
