Tomlinson leads TCU to 7th straight win

FORT WORTH, Texas -- LaDainian Tomlinson rushed for 243 yards on 39 carries and had two touchdowns as TCU beat Northwestern 41-14 on Saturday.

Tomlinson ran for 125 yards on 17 carries in the first half, and had a 34-yard scoring run nullified by a holding penalty. Near the end of the third quarter, Tomlinson had a 74-yard touchdown run negated by a holding call.

"It was just another day at the office," Tomlinson said. "I could have had 350, but I feel I still played well."

TCU has won seven straight, its longest winning streak since 1984. TCU's Casey Printers completed 8-of-12 for 101 yards and two touchdowns. He also ran for 74 yards and a touchdown.

Tailback Damien Anderson had a 39-yard touchdown run in the first quarter to give Northwestern its only lead, 7-3.

TULSA 23, RICE 16: Donald Shoals returned a punt 71 yards for a touchdown and visiting Tulsa capitalized on three Rice fumbles. First-year Tulsa coach Keith Burns got his first victory.

EAST CAROLINA 37, TULANE 17: David Garrard threw scoring passes of 42 and 59 yards in the second half for the host Pirates. Garrard rushed for 112 yards and threw for 185 yards on 10-of-27 passing.

WYOMING 31, CENTRAL MICHIGAN 10: Nate Scott rushed for 192 yards and two touchdowns, including a school-record 95-yard run, for host Wyoming, which avoided starting 0-3 for the first time since 1975.
