HOUSTON—Marcus Curry rushed for 131 yards and two touchdowns to lead Texas State to a 30-13 win over the Houston Cougars Saturday night.

Curry caught two passes for 23 yards and a touchdown. Shawn Rutherford was 18 of 24 for 189 yards and a touchdown to lead Texas State, which is in its first year of FBS play and will play in the WAC this season.

Houston’s David Piland was 17 of 44 for 211 yards and a touchdown in his first start since going 2-6 as a starter in 2010 when he started in place of an injured Case Keenum.

Charles Sims rushed for 77 yards on 13 carries for Houston, which was playing its first regular season game under Tony Levine after Kevin Sumlin left for Texas A&M. Levine coached the Cougars to a win in the TicketCity Bowl over Penn State last year.
