9th ranked BYU suffered no letdown after last week's upset of then third ranked Oklahoma. And, Tulane paid for it.

The Cougars ran up 527 yards of total offense on the way to a 54-3 rout of Tulane Saturday afternoon at the Superdome. BYU quarterback Max Hall passed for 309 yards and two touchdowns.

Tulane could manage only a 29 yard field goal by Ross Thevenot. Wave running back Andre Anderson, on the Doak Walker Award watch list, was held to 36 yards on 12 carries.

Tulane falls to 0-2.
