Marshall 38, Tulane 23

Brian Anderson threw for two touchdowns and Marshall jumped out

to an early lead to beat Tulane 38-23 on Saturday in the season

finale for both teams.

Anderson, who finished with 162 yards passing and one

interception, connected with Courtney Edmonson on a 20-yard

touchdown to give the Thundering Herd (5-7, 4-4 Conference USA) a

14-7 lead in the second quarter.

The Thundering Herd pushed their lead to 28-7 after Kevin Perry

scored off a blocked punt and Anderson threw a 19-yard touchdown

pass to Tron Martinez.

The Green Wave cut the margin to 14 points with 8 seconds left

before halftime when Ryan Grant caught a 12-yard pass from Ryan

Griffin. But Tulane (4-8, 2-6) pulled no closer after Tyler

Warner’s 33-yard field goal and Rashad Jackson’s 84-yard

interception for a score for Marshall.

Griffin was 36-for-64 for 370 yards and threw three

interceptions.
