TULSA, Okla. - In its first overtime action of the season, Rice University football topped division rival Tulsa, 30-27, in overtime on Saturday night at H.A. Chapman Stadium.
The Golden Hurricane rallied from a 24-10 deficit and tied the game with a field goal with just 1:07 remaining in regulation to force the extra period.
Rice won the coin toss and elected to defend. After holding the Tulsa offense to six yards on three carries, the home team booted a 36-yard field goal to take its first lead of the afternoon.
It marked Rice's first overtime win since 2006, when the Owls accomplished the feat at Tulsa. That was also Rice's last win against the outgoing Conference USA member.
Michael Kutzler paced the defense with 11 tackles on the day, while Malcolm Hill and Julius White each nabbed interceptions. Christian Covington forced a fumble, which was recovered by Paul Porras as well.
