TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Alex Singleton ran for 100 yards and plunged over the top for a 1-yard score in overtime to lift Tulsa to a 33-27 victory over UCF on Saturday in the Conference USA championship game.

Tulsa won the C-USA championship for the first time since 2005 and is off to the Liberty Bowl.

Singleton came up with just the second 100-yard game of his career, breaking the school record for touchdowns in the process. He also had a 7-yard score in the second quarter to break Tarrion Adams' mark with his 40th overall touchdown and 39 on the ground.

After Cory Dorris blocked Shawn Moffitt's 38-yard field goal on Central Florida's possession to start overtime, Tulsa (10-3) kept the ball on the ground on five straight plays. Singleton was initially given a touchdown on second-and-goal, but officials ruled on replay that he was down inside the 1.

That was no problem for the burly back whose specialty is short yardage.

Blake Bortles accounted for three touchdowns for UCF (9-4).
