ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- G.J. Kinne threw for 310 yards and four touchdowns Saturday to help Tulsa defeat New Mexico 44-10.
The Golden Hurricane (2-0) took advantage of early mistakes by the Lobos (0-2), then got their offense in high gear in the second half.
Tulsa scored in the first following a fumble by Lobos punt returner Frankie Solomon at the 16. Four plays later, Charles Clay went over the middle from the 1-yard line five minutes into the game.
The Golden Hurricane were unable to find the end zone again until Kinne found Johnson from 2 yards out with 38 seconds remaining in the first half.
The Lobos got their first touchdown of the season in the fourth when linebacker Tray Hardaway returned a fumble 92 yards.
