Late score lifts Tulane past Navy, 29-28, Wave bowl eligible

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Tulane coach Willie Fritz looked at the man who'd hired him to turn the Green Wave football program around and held up two fingers.

Athletic Director Troy Dannen said third-year coach signaled his intent to attempt a high-stakes, 2-point conversion several snaps before Tulane's decisive drive had even reached the end zone, adding, "I knew he had the play."

Justin McMillan connected with Jaetavian Toles for a 26-yard touchdown with 1:27 left, passed back across the field to Charles Jones for the 2-point conversion, and Tulane avoided a devastating collapse with a 29-28 victory over Navy to become bowl eligible for the first time since 2013.
