Tulane bowl hopes hinge on win against struggling Navy

The Green Wave needs a victory over visiting Navy on Saturday, Nov. 24, 2018, to reach the six-victory plateau, which would virtually assure Tulane its first bowl bid since the 2013 season and only its third since 2002. “We’ve increased our conference wins. Getting to a bowl game would be big for us,” third-year Tulane coach Willie Fritz said.

Navy amassed 389 yards on the ground in the game. (AP Photo/Phelan M. Ebenhack, File)
