ECU loses heartbreaker to Tulane

Posted: Updated:
NEW ORLEANS -

Cairo Santos kicked five field goals, including a 42-yard game winner in overtime, to give Tulane a 36-33 win over East Carolina in a Conference USA matchup Saturday.

Both teams matched each other with two OT touchdowns but East Carolina's third possession drive stalled and Warren Harvey missed a 42-yard field goal, giving Tulane the opening it needed to send Santos in for the game-winning score when it took over the ball.

The Green Wave (5-2, 3-0) relied on Santos, and a 98-yard interception return for a touchdown by Derrick Strozier, to keep the game close as East Carolina (4-2, 2-1) racked up 543 total yards of offense, including 480 yards passing and a touchdown by Shane Carden. East Carolina had a chance to take the lead with 3 seconds remaining in regulation but Warren Harvey missed a 42-yard field goal, sending the game into overtime.
