Tulsa stumps toe in 35-27 loss at SMU

DALLAS — Zach Line ran for three touchdowns, and SMU got a last-second, goal-line stop to hold off Tulsa 35-27 on Saturday and become eligible for a school-record fourth consecutive bowl game.

Line, who totaled 81 yards rushing, scored on two 3-yard runs in the first half before his 10-yarder late in the third quarter gave the Mustangs (6-6, 5-3 Conference USA) a 35-6 lead.

The Golden Hurricane (9-3, 7-1) rallied behind Cody Green, who threw touchdowns to Willie Carter and Keyarris Garrett before Alex Singleton’s 1-yard run pulled Tulsa within eight with 5:05 to play.

Tulsa got the ball back with 46 seconds left, but on the final play, Jordan James was stopped at the SMU 1 after a 34-yard completion from Green.

Green threw for 413 yards and three scores for Tulsa, which rolled up 591 yards of total offense but was hurt by two lost fumbles and an interception. SMU’s Garrett Gilbert threw a touchdown to Der’rikk Thompson and added 111 yards rushing and a score.
