The Tulane Green Wave captivated the college football-watching public in Week 4, beating Houston 38-31 in dramatic come-from-behind fashion on a Thursday night. The win, which included a fake quarterback kneel and a long game-winning touchdown pass in the final seconds of regulation, improved Tulane’s record to 3-1 overall and 1-0 in American Athletic Conference play. It also set up an important non-conference clash with the Army West Point Black Knights.
Army also is 3-1 following a Week 4 win and bye. The Blacks Knights beat Morgan State 52-21 two weeks ago.

When Tulane Has the Ball
Tulane head coach Willie Fritz and offensive coordinator Will Hall are a dynamic duo when it comes to designing an offense. Under their direction, Tulane has averaged 6.59 yards per play, which ranks third in the AAC and No. 26 in the country. The Green Wave use a balanced attack that spreads the ball around among a deep group of skill position players, led by quarterback Justin McMillan.
