Denton, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Cody Sokol had five touchdown passes as Louisiana Tech rolled to a 42-21 victory over North Texas on Thursday.

Sokol went 20-for-31 for 243 yards with an interception and Trent Taylor caught five passes for 54 yards and a touchdown for the Bulldogs (2-1, 1-0 C- USA), who have won their past two after a season-opening loss to Oklahoma. Paul Turner had two touchdown catches.

Josh Greer was 13-for-27 for 77 yards with a rushing touchdown for the Mean Green (1-2, 0-1), who were coming off a win over SMU last Saturday.

The first quarter passed without a score, but the Bulldogs scored on three straight possessions in the second quarter as Sokol had scoring passes of four yards to Josh Gaston, 28 yards to Hunter Lee, and five yards to Turner to amass a 21-0 lead at the break.

A fumble by Carl Caldwell was recovered by Louisiana Tech at the North Texas 2-yard line, and the next play saw Kenneth Dixon take it in for a 28-0 lead with 7 1/2 minutes left in the third.

North Texas responded with an eight-play, 59-yard drive capped on a 5-yard TD run by Greer, but Louisiana Tech answered with a 21-yard touchdown catch by Turner from Sokol.

Sokol and Taylor connected for a 12-yard score and a 42-7 lead just two minutes into the fourth quarter for a 42-7 advantage.

Antoinne Jimmerson and Erick Evans had touchdown runs of three and nine yards, respectively, for North Texas later in the fourth to account for the final score.
