TULSA, Okla. (AP) Greg Ward Jr. threw for 273 yards and ran for 182 yards with three touchdowns, breaking the school record for rushing yards by a quarterback, to help lead Houston to a 38-24 victory over Tulsa on Saturday.
Kenneth Farrow finished with 159 yards on 19 carries with two touchdowns, including a 44-yarder for the Houston (4-0, 1-0 American Conference).
All three of Ward's touchdown runs came in the first half, helping Houston to a 21-10 lead at the break. A Zack Langer 1-yard TD run for Tulsa late in the third cut the Cougars lead to seven (24-17) after three quarters. But the Golden Hurricanes (2-2, 0-1) got no closer, as Farrow added both of his TD's in the fourth to push the game out of reach.
