UTSA, NSU ex Coker take down Hurricane

TULSA   — Eric Soza amassed 157 total yards to lead Texas-San Antonio to a 34-15 victory over Tulsa Saturday.

The Roadrunners (4-5, 3-2 Conference USA), coached by NSU alum Larry Coker, dominated early, opening up a 24-0 halftime lead as David Glasco II, who rushed for a total of 135 yards, had 92 yards on 8 carries in the first half.

Soza opened the scoring when he hit Evans Okotcha from 5-yards out in the first quarter.

Kam Jones broke for an 84-yard scoring run midway in the second quarter to put UTSA out front 24-0.

Tulsa (2-6, 1-3) got on the board in the third quarter when Dane Evans found Jordan James for a nine-yard score. Tulsa was driving again in the final quarter when Triston Wade intercepted Evans, returning it 82 yards for a score. That gave the Roadrunners a 34-8 advantage with 8:33 remaining in the game.

Evans completed 12 of 22 passes for 159 yards and one touchdown, and Keevan Lucas tallied a career-high 87 receiving yards on five catches. Shawn Jackson led Tulsa with 11 tackles,
