Tulsa 66, Nicholls 16


TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Ja'Terian Douglas rushed for 163 yards and two touchdowns on just five attempts, Cody Green threw for two more scores and Tulsa took control early and coasted past Nicholls State 66-16 on Saturday in the first-ever meeting between the schools.

Green was 10 of 15 for 130 yards, finding Keyarris Garrett and Willie Carter for touchdowns. Tulsa piled up 566 yards of total offense, 333 of them on the ground.
