Recap: UCF vs. Tulsa

Orlando, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Justin Holman threw for 291 yards and three touchdowns as the UCF Knights defeated the Tulsa Golden Hurricane, 31-7, in an American Athletic Conference battle at Bright House Networks Stadium.

Holman converted 16-of-27 passes and was sacked three times as he led the Knights (6-3, 4-1 AAC) to a sixth win in seven outings. Josh Reese turned four receptions into 104 yards and a score, while Dontravious Wilson finished with 87 yards and a TD on 17 rushing attempts for the hosts.

Tulsa (2-8, 2-4) quarterback Dane Evans connected on a mere 9-of-28 for just 69 yards and a score, while being intercepted three times in the disappointing outing.

UCF pushed out to a 17-0 advantage in the first half as kicker Rodrigo Quirarte knocked through a 27-yard field goal for the only points of the first quarter, followed by a five-yard TD catch by J.J. Worton and a Reese 77-yard TD grab in the second period.

The Golden Hurricane finally broke through at the 5:41 mark of the second quarter as Evans found Keevan Lucas for an eight-yard score, but still the visitors trailed by double figures heading into the break.

In the third, Holman capped a nine-play, 84-yard drive with a 25-yard TD strike to Breshad Perriman, followed by Wilson's one-yard TD run late in the frame, boosting the UCF margin to 24 points before heading into a scoreless fourth stanza.

Tulsa, which converted a mere 3-of-12 on third down, generated just 201 yards of total offense, compared to 506 yards for the home team.
