Tulane 27, South Alabama 24

MOBILE, Ala. Cameron Carroll ran for two of Tulane's four rushing touchdowns and the Green Wave scored the final 21 points to beat South Alabama 27-24 on Saturday night.

Amare Jones scored on a 16-yard run to cap the scoring with 3:18 to play. After the Jaguars went three-and-out, Tulane (1-0) took possession near midfield and three plays later brought out the punt team on fourth-and-14. South Alabama, however, was called for a personal foul when a defender tried to leap a blocker, giving the Green Wave a fresh set of downs with about 90 seconds left.

Diego Guajardo's 49-yard field goal midway through the third quarter gave South Alabama (1-1) a 24-6 lead.

Carroll scored on a 12-yard run about 2 1/2 minutes later and Keon Howard's 1-yard TD run on the second play of the fourth quarter trimmed Tulane's deficit to 24-19.

Chance Lovertich passed for 249 yards and two touchdowns for the Jaguars. Kawaan Baker had seven receptions for 129 yards and a score.

It was the first game played at South Alabama's new Hancock Whitney Stadium.
