Associated Press

TULSA, Okla. -- Freshman quarterback Kyle Padron threw for 354 yards, turning two broken plays into scoring passes, in his first career start to lead SMU to a 27-13 victory over Tulsa on Saturday.

Padron, who came off the bench a week ago, completed 20 of 30 passes for the Mustangs (4-4, 3-1 C-USA) .

Padron broke a 7-7 tie in the third quarter when he scrambled and found running back Shawnbrey McNeal in the flat. He twisted his way 36 yards for a score.

Tulsa (4-4, 2-2) cut the deficit to 20-13 when reserve quarterback Jacob Bower found tight end Jake Collums over the middle from 13 yards out.

Tulsa coach Todd Graham went for a fourth-and-18 from the SMU 44 with 5:31 to play. G.J.Kinne's pass was deflected and SMU drove 56 yards for the clinching score, a 2-yard plunge by Zach Line.
