AMES, Iowa (AP) — Steele Jantz threw for 281 yards and two touchdowns and ran for another score as Iowa State beat Tulsa 38-23 Saturday to win its ninth opener in 10 years. Shontrelle Johnson added a career-high 120 yards rushing for the Cyclones, who scored 24 straight points and held off a late rally by the Golden Hurricane. Jantz threw and ran for second-quarter touchdowns to help Iowa State move ahead 24-16 at halftime. Cody Green's 3-yard touchdown pass to Keyarris Garrett brought Tulsa within 31-23 in the fourth quarter. But the Golden Hurricane's final drive fizzled when Deon Broomfield intercepted Green with 2:04 left. Johnson's 5-yard TD run on the next play sealed the win for Iowa State. Green had 198 yards passing and two touchdowns in his first career start for Tulsa.
