Tulane scores 16 late points, beats USC 46-45 in Cotton Bowl

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Alex Bauman knew right away he had scored probably the biggest touchdown in Tulane history, even after the true freshman tight end's contested 6-yard catch at the end of the Cotton Bowl was initially ruled incomplete.

"I kept my hands under the ball," he said.

The long replay review proved Bauman made the catch with 9 seconds left, even with linebacker Eric Gentry draped over him as they rolled over in the end zone. That capped a frantic finish for the 14th-ranked Green Wave in a 46-45 win over Heisman Trophy winner Caleb Williams and No. 8 Southern California on Monday.
