One Minute Please!

The FBS independent University of Massachusetts Minutemen are coming off a 3-9 campaign returning 6 starters.  With Junior College transfer QB Andre Ford at the control, the offense will lean heavily on star running back Marquis Young.

Defensively the Minutemen lose 8 starters and are in search of new blood. The defense last year was abysmal with 15 QB sacks, giving up 31 points and 448 yards per game.

Tulane outlasts the Minutemen, in another close one on the road.Two wins in a row for the Green Wave.

WIN, 3-2
