Central Florida holds on against Tulane 20-13
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - UCF's defense came up with a pair of late fourth down stops, helping the Knights hold on for a 20-13 American Athletic Conference victory over Tulane on Saturday.
The Knights (4-2, 2-0 AAC) survived four turnovers and late penalties to preserve the win.
Both sides were sloppy on offense, combining for six turnovers. UCF quarterback Justin Holman had a 45-yard touchdown pass in the third quarter, but was intercepted twice by Tulane (2-5, 1-2).
It was enough for UCF coach George O'Leary to pull him in favor of Nick Patti in the second quarter. The change lasted three series, before Holman was reinserted to begin the second half.
In his second straight start at quarterback, Tulane's Nick Montana finished 18 for 42 for 147 yards and two interceptions.
