Video: Tulane receivers coach Jeff Conway on season finale
In his 3rd season as wide receivers coach at Tulane, Conway has worked with Willie Fritz since 1984. The Green Wave seeks bowl eligibility with a win versus Navy at Yulman Stadium:
TULANE LOOKS TO BECOME BOWL ELIGIBLE ON SENIOR DAY
• Tulane returns home for its final game of the regular season as it welcomes Navy to Yulman Stadium.
• The Green Wave will look to get back on the winning track after it fell 48-17 to Houston on ESPN’s Thursday Night Football.
• Saturday afternoon’s game will be the 23rd meeting between the two teams. Navy won in 2017, but Tulane holds an 11-10-1 lead in the lifetime series.
• A win over Navy would make the Green Wave bowl eligible for the first time since the 2013 season.
• Prior to the game, Tulane will honor its 20-person 2018 senior class.
FIRST AND 10
• Tulane will look to finish league play with a winning record for the first time since joining The American in 2014.
• Tulane enters Saturday’s contest in search of its fourth win at home this season. Since the start of the 2017 season, Tulane owns a 7-4 mark at Yulman Stadium.
• Tulane will be in search of its first win over Navy since the 2004 season. The Green Wave have dropped each of the last four meetings with the Midshipmen. The last two losses have come by seven points or fewer.
• Tulane’s rushing attack has gained 100 yards or more on the ground in each of the last 38 games.
• Junior Darius Bradwell is Tulane’s leading rusher this season with 918 yards on 151 carries. Bradwell has scored a team-high nine touchdowns. Bradwell ranks ninth in The American with 83.5 yards per game and is 30th nationally with 6.08 yards per carry. He is also tied for 10th nationally with 12 rushes of 20 yards or longer.
• Bradwell needs just 82 yards to reach 1,000 yards rushing for the season, while WR Darnell Mooney needs just 148 yards receiving to reach 1,000 yards receiving for the year.
• Only once in the last 70 years has Tulane featured a 1,000-yard running back and a 1,000-yard receiver in the same season (2009).
• Tulane is 3-1 since Justin McMillan took over as the team’s starting QB. In his last start at home, McMillan posted career highs in yards (372) and TD passes (three). Since taking over as the starter, McMillan has nine TDs (six passing, three rushing).
• Sophomore DE Patrick Johnson tops Tulane with 9.0 sacks, a number that puts him second in the league. He leads Tulane with 13.5 tackles for loss and has recorded at least one TFL in nine of the last 10 games.
• Tulane’s 2018 slate has been the 16th-toughest schedule at the FBS level based on FBS opponent winning percentage.
