1:50 Fourth Quarter
(9) BYU 54, Tulane 3

The Cougars just continue to roll and I don't think they are "running" it up.....the defense has come through with some big plays, the offense has stuck to the run game and it's just an all round beat down......BYU will move to 2-0 and set up a showdown with Florida State in Provo next Saturday.....RF

11:47 Fourth Quarter
(9) BYU 47, Tulane 3

A methodical effort for BYU....mixing the Pass and Run with great balance.....Max = 300+ yards and 120 + rushing yards....The defense now gets in on the business....J Pendleton picks up a fumble and goes in from 12 yards out.....Everyone in on the action!....RF

13:07 Fourth Quarter
(9) BYU 40, Tulane 3

Nice 1 yd TD run by J.J. DiLuigi. Freshman Anthony Heimuli had a nice catch before that to make it 1st and Goal. Yes, we're at 40, not 41. Mitch Payne missed an extra point for the latest kicking miscue. The kicking game continues to be iffy - Andrew Adams

3:02 Third Quarter
(9) BYU 34, Tulane 3

That was a beautiful play for a touchdown. Max Hall goes deep for a 38 yard touchdown to McKay Jacobson. The ball was actually a little under-thrown, but Jacobson wrestled it away. The Cougars are coasting now. It's good to see this really wasn't a let-down effort of any kind. There remain some concerns. The BYU kicking game is still seeing some struggles. Riley Stephenson tried his hand at a kickoff earlier and booted it out of bounds. It sounds like Riley Nelson is warming up for BYU. We should get a first in-game look at the Utah State transfer ...

4:09 Third Quarter
(9) BYU 27, Tulane 3

The Cougar running game looks fantastic as they drove all over the Greewave for a Diluiggi touchdown. Credit to the O-line and Bryan Karyia because they are running all over the place. What's up with the BYU Kick-off issues? -Alex

9:25 Third Quarter
(9) BYU 20, Tulane 3

Early Int for Max Hall stops the drive for BYU to start the 2nd Half. Tulane unable to do anything with the TO and the Cougars take the ball back and start at their 10 yard line.....RF

HALFTIME Second Quarter
(9) BYU 20, Tulane 3

The two scores before the half were exactly what the Cougars needed but two big injuries. With such limited reserves at the offensive line spot, lets hope the injuries aren't that serious. -Alex

1:30 Second Quarter
(9) BYU 13, Tulane 3

6:03 Second Quarter
(9) BYU 6, Tulane 3

Tulane just drained a 29 yd FG. That was a close-call if you're a streak watcher. Tulane is in its 31st consecutive quarter now without ever holding a lead. The Green Wave looked like it was going to score, but a penalty helped to foil that. It was a scary play a minute ago that knocked Scott Johnson out of the game. He wasn't moving. We'll hope he's ok. Andrew Rich moved over to Johnson's position and Shiloah Te'o filled Rich's slot in Johnson's absence.

12:00 Second Quarter
(9) BYU 6, Tulane 0

The offense is moving well, almost 7 yards per play. Ask Oklahoma though, field goals don't give you comfortable lead. Not worried though, Tulane can't move the football on the Coug defense so far. BYU 6 Tulane 0 -Alex

14:15 Second Quarter
(9) BYU 6, Tulane 0

Mitch Payne another FG of 20 yards to give the Cougars a 6-0 lead....long drives for both BYU scores, but only FG's...both sides of the ball look crisp for the Cougars....just need to finish the drives......Randolph Fairbairn

00:00 First Quarter
(9) BYU 3, Tulane 0

It's interesting to note a quarter into BYU's second game what may be a change in philosophy. BYU seems to be much more ball-control oriented, even in the short passing game, than it has been in recent seasons. Also, it's nice to see Harvey Unga getting some light work. That makes sense to try to get him some live action before BYU plays Florida State at home next week. Once again, BYU's defensive line looks dominant. The Cougar front seven appears to be for-real, and should terrorize offenses the rest of the year.

6:23 First Quarter
(9) BYU 3, Tulane 0

Game underway and BYU wins the toss and defers to the 2nd half....Tulane takes the ball......some great defensive plays and the ball goes to BYU.....down the field the Cougars march and put 3 on the board after failing on 3 and 3.....3-0 BYU...Randolph Fairbairn

15:00 First Quarter
(9) BYU 0, Tulane 0

At kick-off, looks like a thin crowd compared to last week's game. The Cougars just need to play to their ranking. The defense needs a quick three and out to send a message.
