A 29-yard field goal by sophomore kicker Ross Krautman has helped Syracuse University take a 10-7 advantage over Tulane University in a non-conference contest at the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans. Krautman's kick capped a 14-play, 69-yard drive, which marched down to the Green Wave's eight-yard line, but was halted when SU's senior quarterback Ryan Nassib was sacked on third-and-goal.
On the game's opening drive, Tulane used a 40-yard TD run by sophomore running back Orleans Darkwa to take a quick 7-0 advantage. Darkwa's run ended an eight-play, 80-yard drive by the Green Wave, who converted two third downs on the march.
On the ensuing kick off, SU freshman Jeremiah Kobena returned the ball 79 yards to Tulane's three-yard line. One play later, Orange senior tailback Antwon Bailey plunged into the end zone and tied the game at 7.
Syracuse will start the second quarter with the ball and on their own 38-yard line. It will be 2nd-and-10.
