NEW ORLEANS (AP) - -

Braeden West rushed for 119 yards and two touchdowns, including the go-ahead score with 1:16 remaining to complete a 10-point fourth-quarter comeback, and SMU held on to beat Tulane 35-31 on Saturday night.

After Sherman Badie scored to give the Green Wave a 31-21 lead with 10:37 left to play, West capped a 10-play drive with a 1-yard score to cut the deficit to 31-24.

SMU (4-4, 2-2 American) forced a turnover on downs, and after converting a third-and-25 on the drive, West plunged in for his second score, also from a yard out.

Tulane (3-5, 0-4) converted two fourth downs on its ensuing possession, but Darrion Millines intercepted Glen Cuiellette's pass as time expired to seal an SMU victory.

The Mustangs led 21-10 at halftime, but two 24-yard TD passes from Cuiellette to Terren Encalada put the Green Wave in front 24-21 before Badie's 9-yard run.
