BOISE, Idaho -- P.J. Daniels just about made sure Georgia Tech had a seventh straight winning season all by himself.
Daniels ran for 307 yards, the second-highest total in school history, and four touchdowns to lead the Yellow Jackets to a 52-10 rout of Tulsa yesterday in the Humanitarian Bowl.
"I feed off of negative energy, man, because I'm a positive person," said Daniels, who had never scored more than one touchdown in a game. "A couple of fans gave me some encouraging, negative words."
The Yellow Jackets (7-6) haven't had a losing season since going 5-6 in 1996.
Tulsa (8-5) closed the regular season on a five-game winning streak for the school's first bowl berth since 1991. The Golden Hurricane didn't score a touchdown until the fourth quarter and finished with 144 total yards. They were sacked seven times and held to minus-56 yards rushing. Tech's previous rushing high in a bowl game was 199 yards by Eddie Prokop in the 1944 Sugar Bowl, a 20-18 win over Tulsa. Daniels had 104 yards at halftime. He scored on runs of 9, 1, 33, and 38 yards. Tech recovered six Tulsa fumbles, scored six touchdowns in the second half, and broke the school bowl record for points set in a 45-21 win over Nebraska in the 1991 Florida Citrus Bowl.
