The Tulane defense added a touchdown when Jordan Batiste sacked Kolton Browning, knocking the ball loose. Dominique Robertson scooped up the fumble, returning it 33 yards for a touchdown. Batiste also had eight tackles and one interception.

The Warhawks got on the board when Rashon Ceaser returned a punt 88 yards to make it 24-7 in the third quarter.
