Carr runs for 3 TDs, leads Houston over North Texas 46-25
Sun Sep 29, 2019 2:13 AM

DENTON, Texas (AP) Patrick Carr ran for 139 yards and three touchdowns to lead Houston to a 46-25 victory over North Texas on Saturday night.

Houston (2-3), which rebounded from consecutive seven-point losses, is off until the Cougars play host to Cincinnati on Oct. 12 to open American Athletic Conference play.

Carr, who surpassed the 1,000-yard career rushing mark in a 38-31 loss at Tulane on Sept. 19, broke loose on a 68-yard touchdown run with his first carry of the game. He added scoring runs from 2 and 12 yards in the second half.

Clayton Tune tossed a 12-yard touchdown pass to Courtney Lark in the first quarter for the Cougars. In the second half, Marquez Stevenson scored on an 82-yard kickoff return, the first Cougar to score on a kickoff since 2016. Bryson Smith added a 60-yard punt return for a touchdown.

Mason Fine was 35-of-55 passing for 353 yards with a pair of touchdown passes for North Texas (2-3). The Mean Green return to Conference USA play at Southern Mississippi on Saturday.
