SMU and Tulane closed out their regular season schedules on Saturday both eyeing bowl bids this week.

SMU opened the scoring early in the first quarter with a beautiful TD catch from Myron Gailliard and led the whole game ending with a final score of 37-20 over the Green Wave.

Following an athletic interception from Tulane Safety Larry Brooks and a subsequent Tulane fumble, Shane Buechele connected with Kylen Granson to extend the SMU lead to 14-0.

The SMU special teams made a difference Saturday blocking a field goal and later on recovering a muffed punt deep inside Tulane territory.
