NEW ORLEANS (Ticker) -- There are no more winless teams in Division I-A football.

Quarterback Reggie Nevels' two-yard run early in the fourth quarter proved the difference as Army notched its first win of the season with a 14-10 Conference USA triumph over Tulane.

Carlton Jones ran for 124 yards as Army (1-9, 1-6 C-USA) outrushed Tulane (6-5, 3-4), 182-26, in snapping a 19-game road losing streak.

The Green Wave took a 10-7 lead on a 31-yard field goal by Seth Marler 4:34 into the second half but could not manage any more points against the Black Knights, who also snapped an eight-game conference losing streak that dated to a 42-35 home triumph over Tulane last October 27.

Nevels' run, which came with 13:21 to play, capped a 13-play, 70-yard drive for Army, which overcame losing four fumbles.

Nevels completed 7-of-16 passes for 94 yards and a touchdown while Tulane's J.P. Losman was 24-of-40 for 172 yards and two interceptions.

Marler had a rough game for the Green Wave, missing two field goals and having another blocked. Army kicker Joe Riley missed his only attempt.

Mewelde Moore, Tulane's all-time leader in rushing and all-purpose yards, was limited to 55 on 18 carries and 56 on six receptions.

Tulane has lost its last two games following a four-game winning streak.
