NEW ORLEANS -- J.P. Losman threw two touchdowns and ran for one as Tulane beat Cincinnati 35-17 Saturday.

Tulane forced four turnovers and had six sacks, three by Kenan Blackmon, helping the Green Wave to overcome a 435-255 yardage deficit.

The Green Wave scored on an 18-yard touchdown from Losman to Tristan Smith with 56 seconds left in the first half. Tulane recovered a fumble on the ensuing kickoff and Losman threw a 13-yard score to Damarcus Davis one play later, giving the Green Wave a 29-10 halftime lead.

Cincinnati's LaDaris Vann, who went in leading the conference in catches per game with 6.2, caught 11 for 112 yards, including a 9-yard touchdown from Gino Guidugli with 12:45 left to get the Bearcats within 35-17.

UAB 51, HOUSTON 34: Darrell Hackney threw three touchdowns for the host Blazers, who overcame a 22-point first-half deficit.

The comeback started when Hackney hit Roddy White for a 21-yard touchdown with 16 seconds left in the first half, cutting Houston's lead to 28-13.

UAB's Zack Woodfin intercepted a pass by Nick Eddy at the Cougar 28-yard line and returned it to the 1. Kendal Gibson scored, getting UAB to 28-23. On Houston's next possession, Joffrey Reynolds fumbled and UAB's Carlos Hendricks recovered at the Cougar 24. Hackney hit Chico Cleveland with a 10-yard touchdown, giving UAB the lead 30-28.

The Blazers then scored two touchdowns early in the fourth, a 1-yard run by Gibson and a 51-yard catch by Willie Quinnie. Houston closed to 44-34 on a 16-yard pass from Eddy to Chris Robertson with 7:24 left.

TCU 46, ARMY 27: Ricky Madison had 116 yards and a touchdown to lead the visiting Horned Frogs, who overcame seven fumbles.

TCU rolled up 265 yards rushing, and Tye Gunn threw for 147 yards and a score on 12-of-15 passing. Lonta Hobbs added touchdown runs of 3 and 62 yards for the Horned Frogs.

Army stayed close on TCU miscues. The Horned Frogs botched a punt inside their 5-yard line and had two touchdowns called back because of penalties.
