NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Jamale Carothers rushed for 125 yards and Bijan Nichols kicked a 33-yard field goal as time expired to help Navy stage a school-record 24-point comeback and beat Tulane 27-24. Tulane was threatening to build on a 24-0 lead in the second quarter before Cameron Kinley intercepted Tulane quarterback Keon Howard at the Navy 3. The turnover looked far more consequential as the game wore on and Navy stunningly seized control. The Midshipmen tied the game on Dalen Morris’ 32-yard touchdown pass to Mychal Cooper. Nelson Smith had two short TD runs for Navy. Cameron Carroll had two touchdown runs for Tulane.
