NEW ORLEANS — 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 on Saturday.
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 yard line.
The turnover looked far more consequential as the game wore on and Navy stunningly seized control.
Navy 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.
