Rice overcomes Tulane comeback 49-47
RICE 49, TULANE 47
NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Luke Turner put Rice ahead to stay with his
first of two fourth-quarter touchdowns and the Owls outlasted
Tulane 49-47 Saturday.
Turner's go-ahead run was confirmed by review after it appeared
he might have been down before crossing the goal line.
The Owls (4-6, 2-4 Conference USA) withstood a comeback led by
Ryan Griffin, who threw for 476 yards and four touchdowns,
including three in the second half when Tulane (2-7, 2-3)
rallied from a 28-10 halftime deficit.
Ryan Travis' 73-yard interception for a touchdown started the
comeback. Tulane led 38-35 on Orleans Darkwa's 1-yard run after
Griffin's 62-yarder to Ryan Grant moved the ball to the 1.
Rice led 14-0 early after two touchdown runs by Taylor McHargue.
The second came after the Owls recovered a Tulane fumble on the
kickoff following the first score.
Tulane gained all its offensive yardage by passing, netting 0
yards on 14 rushes.
