C-USA: Black Knights break two losing streaks

November 17, 2002

NEW ORLEANS -- No matter how bad things get for Army's Black Knights, they're a different team when they play Tulane.

Reggie Nevels threw for a touchdown and ran for another Saturday to help Army get its first win of the season, 14-10 over the Green Wave. Army has beaten Tulane each of the past three years.

The 10 points are the fewest the Black Knights have allowed in past 68 games; they beat Air Force 23-7 on Nov. 9, 1996. It was Army's first road victory since winning Oct. 10, 1998, at Houston and the Black Knights avoided their second 0-10 start (that was their final record in 1973).

Tulane's Seth Marler had a field goal blocked and missed two wide. Tulane had the ball on the Army 23 with less than 1:30 to go but J.P. Losman's pass was tipped and intercepted by Maurio Smith.

Nevels, who missed the second quarter after being hit by Anthony Cannon during a scramble, had 94 yards passing, including a 35-yard score to Blaine Cooper in the first quarter.

"I'm still checking for all my body parts, but besides that I feel pure joy," Nevels said. "The defense really won the game for us though."

UAB 36, EAST CAROLINA 29: Kendal Gibson scored on a 1-yard run with a minute left for the host Blazers, who kept their bowl hopes alive and all but eliminated ECU's postseason chances.

Darrell Hackney went 20-of-34 for 424 yards and three touchdowns for UAB.

East Carolina trailed 29-17 entering the fourth quarter but tied the score behind quarterback Desmond Robinson, who played the second half in relief of starter Paul Troth.

Robinson threw a 4-yard score to Art Brown, cutting UAB's lead to 29-24 with 10:38 left. Safety Antwane Yelverton tackled Theron Dudley for a safety, making it 29-26. A 31-yard field goal by Kevin Miller tied it at 29 with 4:09 left.

CINCINNATI 47, HOUSTON 14: Gino Guidugli threw for three touchdowns and ran for one to lead the host Bearcats, who stayed in contention for a bowl berth.

Tye Keith scored on a 38-yard pass from Guidugli in the third quarter.

Houston led 7-3 early after a 3-yard run by Joffrey Reynolds. Guidugli then scored his first touchdown, running for 10 yards.
