Tulane Buries Lowly Swl

Cougars’ next opponent

Shaun King passed for three touchdowns, O’Kie Woods scored three times and Jamaican Dartez rushed for 167 yards and a score Saturday night as Tulane rolled to a 56-0 victory over Southwestern Louisiana.

The triumph moved Tulane (5-3) to within one victory of its first winning season since a 6-5 mark in 1981. The loss kept Southwestern Louisiana (1-8) on track for its worst record since the Ragin’ Cajuns were 1-9-1 in 1981.

Tulane snapped a three-game losing streak to the Cajuns, who lost their third straight game and fifth at home this season. They play at WSU next Saturday.

Tulane jumped to a 36-0 halftime lead and added two more scores in the first eight minutes of the third quarter en route to its fourth win in five games.

King threw scoring passes of 8 and 6 yards to P.J. Franklin in the first and second quarters and connected with Woods from 25 yards less than three minutes into the second half to give the Wave a 43-0 lead.

Tulane forced seven turnovers, including five interceptions.
