Associated Press

TULSA, Okla. -- 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.

Most of Douglas' yardage came on two plays: a 67-yard touchdown run to open the scoring and a 73-yard scamper later in the first quarter that set up one of Alex Singleton's two rushing TDs for the Golden Hurricane (2-1). Zach Langer also ran for two scores, and Trey Watts had one.

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.

LaQuintin Caston had a 63-yard touchdown run for the Colonels (0-2), and Aldaro Russell caught a 51-yard scoring pass from Landry Klann, who threw for 134 yards.
