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.
