NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Patrick Ramsey broke his week-old school record by passing for 447 yards and four touchdowns as Tulane beat Army 48-28 Saturday.
It was the second straight week Ramsey passed for more than 400 yards for Tulane (2-1, 1-1 Conference USA). He threw for 404 yards in a 53-19 defeat of SMU last week.
Ramsey was 34-of-49 with one interception, and scoring passes of 3 and 5 yards to Kerwin Cook, 39 yards to JaJuan Dawson and 5 to Terrell Harris.
Dawson had his second consecutive 100-yard receiving game, catching 10 passes for 125 yards. Adrian Burnette caught five for 121 yards and Cook nine for 98.
Ramsey's 72-yard pass to Burnett on the second play of the third quarter set up his 5-yard TD pass to Cook that gave Tulane a 28-14 halftime lead.
Tulane's Delando Davis forced a fumble by quarterback Joe Gerena on Army's next possession, then returned the ball 47 yards for a touchdown and a 35-14 lead.
Michael Wallace's 1-yard touchdown run got the Cadets (0-2, 0-1) within
35-21 with 7:47 remaining in the third quarter, only to have Ramsey answer with
a 5-yard TD pass to Terrell Harris.
