NEW ORLEANS (Ticker) -- After a short week, Tulane got more than it bargained for from Division I-AA power Northwestern State.
P.J. Losman threw four touchdown passes, including a 23-yarder to Mawelde Moore in overtime, as the Green Wave escaped with a 27-24 victory.
Losman, who nearly engineered a comeback in Monday's 38-35 loss to Texas Christian, answered Tommy Hebert's 24-yard field goal that gave the Demons a 24-21 lead.
Losman and Moore also hooked up for a pair of touchdowns in the first half.
Losman completed 29-of-48 passes for 353 yards and has thrown for 656 yards in the first two games. His 15-yard strike to Tristen Smith gave Tulane (1-1) a 21-14 lead with 8:07 left in regulation.
Northwestern State (1-1) forced overtime on Davon Vinson's 10-yard TD toss to Mark Morriss with 2:41 remaining.
Moore caught touchdown passes of 32 yards in the first quarter and 28 yards early in the third as the Green Wave built a 14-3 lead.
But Northwestern State proved stubborn, tying it at 14-14 early in the fourth quarter on Vinson's one-yard run and his conversion pass to Morris.
Vinson was 19-of-34 for 264 yards.
