Makhi Hughes’ 131 yards and touchdown help No. 20 Tulane hold on against Tulsa, 24-22

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Makhi Hughes rushed for 131 yards and a touchdown, Shedro Louis returned a kickoff 100 yards for a score and No. 20 Tulane defeated Tulsa 24-22 to win its eighth straight game. Michael Pratt passed for 194 yards and a touchdown to help the Green Wave remain on track to defend their American Athletic Conference title and possibly receive a bid to a second straight major New Year’s Day bowl game. Hughes eclipsed the 1,000-yard rushing mark for the season and now has rushed for 100 yards in six straight games. Kirk Francis passed for a career-high 345 yards and a touchdown for Tulsa. But that was not enough to prevent the Golden Hurricane from losing their fifth straight.
