No. 10 Tulane41

In BYU’s first ever appearance at the Liberty Bowl, the Cougars ran into tenth-ranked Tulane that entered the New Year’s Eve game with a˜perfect season record. The Cougars struck first on an 11-yard pass from Kevin Feterik to receiver Ben Horton. Tulane would score 20 unanswered points in the first half. With just 41 seconds remaining in the half, BYU looked to put an end to the Green Wave momentum, but came up short as Feterik was sacked by Phil Henderson for a 10-yard loss to end the half. Things didn’t get much better for the Cougars in the second half, as Tulane scored its third touchdown of the game on the opening drive of the half. On its next possession, the Green Wave would strike again on a 13-yard pass from King to Jamaican Dartez to give Tulane a 34-6 lead with just over seven minutes remaining in the third quarter. On its first drive of the final period, BYU scored for the first time since the 8:49 mark in the first half on an Aaron Cupp three-yard run. Trailing by 28 midway through the fourth quarter, BYU finally crossed the Tulane 20-yard line for the first time since the first half and went on to score 14 unanswered points before time expired.
