UL aims to spoil Tulane's postseason return
NEW ORLEANS - Nick Montana has a chance to play his first bowl game in the same stadium where his famous father, Joe, won a Super Bowl.
That is, if he's healthy enough to take the field for Tulane in Saturday night's New Orleans Bowl.
If Montana can't go, the Green Wave (7-5) won't get any sympathy from Louisiana-Lafayette (8-4), which is in a similar predicament. Ragin' Cajuns starting quarterback Terrance Broadway hasn't played since breaking his right arm Nov. 30.
Even with all the questions at quarterback, Tulane coach Curtis Johnson doesn't think there's much mystery surrounding the approach both offenses will take. He says both teams have good running games.
Louisiana-Lafayette is seeking a third-straight New Orleans Bowl victory, while Tulane is ending an 11-year bowl drought.
