The game was tied at 16 in the third quarter when Memphis went on a 21 point run to put the game away.
Tevin Jones' 52 yard catch and run put the Tigers up 23-16. Tank Jakes' 32 yard interception return for a touchdown put Memphis up 37-16.
"Hats off to Memphis," said Tulane head coach Curtis Johnson. "They played well and got some turnovers."
