Tulane generated two scoring opportunities in 11 possessions and won.
UConn generated five scoring opportunities and scored three points.
Tulane drove 80 yards in six plays on its first possession. The Green Wave gained 222 yards in 57 plays (3.9) and scored three points (offensively) thereafter. And won.
There were four gains of 20+ in the entire game. Neither team had big-play capability, which means field position becomes doubly important. UConn won field position by a significant margin ... and lost.
Yeah, I'd say this game looks about like I thought it would on paper.
