Tulsa routs Ball St.

Associated Press
 

MOBILE, Ala. – Tulsa raced through the rain to a convincing GMAC Bowl win.

Tarrion Adams rushed for 207 yards and three touchdowns in the 45-13 victory over No. 23 Ball State on a soggy Tuesday night. The Golden Hurricane (11-3) finished with a school-record 11 victories.

Adams passed Micheal Gunter to become Tulsa’s career rushing leader. Tulsa had 439 yards rushing and 632 overall – hardly slowing down a bit in a downpour that first formed puddles and then covered nearly the entire field during a second-half deluge.

David Johnson passed for 193 yards and three touchdowns, most of that to freshman Damaris Johnson.

Ball State (12-2) fell to 0-5 in bowl games after recording a school-record 12 wins.

Damaris Johnson supplied many of the big plays for Tulsa’s no-huddle offense and had 274 all-purpose yards.
