Recap: Houston vs. Tulsa

Houston, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Kenneth Farrow ran for 116 yards and four touchdowns to lead the Houston Cougars to a 38-28 win over the Tulsa Golden Hurricane in an American Athletic Conference matchup at TDECU Stadium.

Farrow carried the ball 21 times for the Cougars (6-4, 4-2 AAC) as the team finished with 246 yards on 42 rushing attempts. Quarterback Greg Ward Jr. converted all but five of his 22 pass attempts for another 225 yards and a score. Receiver Steven Dunbar had seven catches for a game-high 150 yards as the team won for the fourth time in five tries.

Tulsa (2-9, 2-5), a loser in two straight, was paced by Dane Evans who converted 28-of-40 for 258 yards and two touchdowns, but was also picked off three times. The signal caller also carried the ball six times for 34 yards and a score, while Zack Langer generated 124 yards and a TD on 29 attempts.

Houston moved out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter thanks in large part to Farrow who registered a pair of one-yard TDs on drives that measured just under 80 yards apiece.

The Golden Hurricane was able to cut its deficit in half before intermission thanks to a three-yard touchdown run from Evans.

In the third quarter Tulsa knotted the score at 14-14 thanks to a two-yard TD run by Langer, finishing off a 15-play, 75-yard drive that consumed more than eight minutes on the clock.

On the ensuing drive by the Cougars, one that required only 1:25, Farrow struck again with a 45-yard TD run this time, putting the hosts on top once more.

The advantage was short lived however, as Evans hooked up with Keyarris Garrett on a 17-yard TD pass play less than three minutes later.

Houston also went on the attack through the air as their next possession ended with a 25-yard scoring strike from Ward to Markeith Ambles, making the score 28-21 heading into the fourth quarter.

Once more the Golden Hurricane managed to tie the score, thanks to a one-yard TD toss from Evans to Zach Epps midway through the period, but that was before Farrow reached the end zone on a two-yard run and Houston kicker Kyle Bullard put the home team ahead by double digits with a 35-yard field goal in the final minutes of regulation.

The Cougars produced 471 yards of offense on 12 fewer snaps than Tulsa.

The start of the game was moved up several hours due to inclement weather forecasted in the area for later in the day.
