Tulsa rolls over Hawaii

Associated Press
HONOLULU — Damaris Johnson broke loose for 326 all-purpose yards to set an NCAA career record and Tulsa took advantage of six first-half turnovers to beat No. 24 Hawaii 62-35 in the Hawaii Bowl on Friday night. The Golden Hurricane (10-3) grounded the nation’s No. 1 passing offense most of the night and broke it open with a 21-point third quarter for their seventh straight win and third consecutive bowl victory. The short and speedy Johnson earned MVP honors, rushing for 98 yards and a touchdown and catching four passes for 101 yards and another score. The junior had two big plays in the decisive third quarter — a 59-yard reception and a 67-yard TD run that put Tulsa up 41-28. Hawaii (10-4) was led by senior Greg Salas who also had a record night. He had 13 receptions for 214 yards and two touchdowns, setting Hawaii single-season records in receptions and receiving yards.
