Louisiana-Monroe 63, Tulane 10
NEW ORLEANS -- Kolton Browning threw three first-half touchdown passes and Louisiana-Monroe cruised to a 63-10 victory over Tulane on Saturday.
The junior was 15-of-21 for 253 yards as the Warhawks (2-2) gained 553 yards and scored their most points since moving to the Football Bowl Subdivision level in 1994.
The Green Wave (0-4) lost their 14th straight and had just 151 yards total offense.
After Browning's first scoring pass, a 3-yarder to Kevin Steed, made it 14-0 in the first quarter, D.J. Ponder, the third Tulane starting quarterback in three weeks, was intercepted by R.J. Young. Young fumbled at the Tulane 6 after returning it 49 yards, but Ray Stovall recovered the ball in the end zone to score.
Browning threw for second-quarter scores of 29 yards to Je'Ron Hamm and 38 yards to Tavarese Mays, and Darius Lively's 6-yard interception return touchdown in the third quarter put the Warhawks up 56-3.
