Senior Night is in the books and G.J. Kinne took over in El Paso as the Tulsa Golden Hurricane dominated the UTEP Miners 57-28. Kinne was simply stellar. He completed 19 of 25 passes for 283 yards and had 3 touchdowns. UTEP was led by a semi-strong rushing attack anchored by Joe Banyard, Leilyon Myers, and Vernon Frazier. Carson Meger went 20 for 34 for 204 yards with two interceptions, one which led to a pick six that all but ended this one in the third quarter.
The Miners, of course, end the season at Central Florida next week. With a win, the Miners will clinch back-to-back bowl appearances. The reeling Knights are sitting at 4-6 overall and are currently tied 24-24 in the third quarter against East Carolina.
