We are #7. Houston is #5
7. Tulane

Previous ranking: 7

Record: 5-5 (4-2 AAC)

Last week: defeated East Carolina, 24-18

This week: at Houston (Thursday)

Trajectory: Surging. Tulane set up the biggest game for the program in 20 years, limiting ECU QB Holton Ahlers to 21 of 67 passing with an NCAA-record 20 pass break-ups (the stat started being kept in 2000). If it wins at defensively challenged Houston on Thursday and SMU loses to Memphis on Friday, Tulane will have sole possession of first place in the AAC West.

Did you know? The five teams that beat Tulane (Wake Forest, UAB, Ohio State, Cincinnati, SMU) have a composite record of 37-13.
“We will expect success in all endeavors and be prepared to assess and hold ourselves accountable when we aren't successful. Tulane is a top 40 academic institution and it should expect nothing less from its athletic department.” --Troy Dannen 11.5.16
