No. 16 Memphis beats Tulane 41-13 after another slow start

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - -

Paxton Lynch threw for 343 yards and a touchdown and ran for 43 more as 16th-ranked Memphis routed Tulane 41-13 Saturday night.
    
The Tigers (8-0, 4-0 American Athletic Conference) trailed 13-0 before answering with 41 straight points. This is the fifth game Memphis has trailed by at least 10 points this season. Doroland Dorceus, Anthony Miller and Jarvis Cooper each ran for a TD, and Jake Elliott kicked three field goals as Memphis won its 15th straight game.
    
Only No. 1 Ohio State (21) and No. 5 TCU (16) have longer winning streaks than the Tigers.
    
Tulane (2-6, 1-4) lost its fourth straight overall and ninth in this series. The Green Wave jumped to a 13-0 lead within the first 16 minutes with redshirt senior Jordy Joseph making the first start of his career with Tanner Lee and Devin Powell both injured.
