BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- Luke Turner ran for a game-winning 1-yard touchdown in overtime as Rice edged UAB 37-34 on Thursday night to remain in the thick of the Conference USA West Division race.
Turner's run was set up by a 17-yard run to the UAB 1-yard line by Jowan Davis, who finished with 130 yards rushing and a touchdown for Rice (8-3, 6-1 C-USA).
A 2-yard touchdown run by Davis with 7:20 left in regulation put Rice up 31-21 but UAB responded with a 20-yard touchdown pass from Jonathan Perry to Darius Powell with 3:37 remaining.
Chris Rabb then recovered a Taylor McHarque fumble to give UAB the ball on the Rice 33, setting up a game-tying 24-yard field goal by Long with 37 seconds left.
