FRESNO, California (Ticker) -- Rodney Davis rushed for 145 yards and a touchdown on 31 carries, leading Fresno State to a 31-12 Western Athletic Conference victory over Tulsa.

Davis went over the 1,000-yard mark, raising his season total to 1,016. His brother, Marque, caught eight passes for 88 yards.

Paul Pinegar completed 21-of-32 passes for 295 yards and two TDs for the Bulldogs (5-5, 3-2), who snapped a two-game losing streak.

Fresno State never was threatened after opening a 14-0 first-quarter lead on Rodney Davis' four-yard TD run and Pinegar's 12-yard TD strike to Jermaine Jamison.

Tulsa (1-9, 1-5) closed to 14-6 on Eric Richardson's three-yard TD with 6:51 left in the second quarter. But Pinegar tossed a 11-yard TD strike to Stephen Spach with 3:40 left, then scored on a one-yard keeper with 25 seconds remaining to give the Bulldogs a 28-6 halftime cushion.

Richardson rushed for 86 yards on 26 carries and also scored Tulsa's second touchdown, a one-yard plunge with five minutes left in the third period.

The Golden Hurricane had little success through the air as James Killian completed just 10-of-25 passes for 82 yards.

Tulsa has dropped 19 of its last 20 games, including two in a row since snapping a 17-game slide with a 20-0 victory over Texas-El Paso on October 26.
