NEW ORLEANS, Dec. 22 (UPI) -- Hunter Stover's 27-yard field goal with 9:56 left in the fourth quarter Saturday sent Louisiana over Tulane 24-21 for a third straight New Orleans Bowl victory.

Stover's first collegiate field goal was set up when Sean Thomas intercepted Tulane's Devin Powell at the Green Wave 13-yard line.

Tulane had one last chance to tie the score but Cairo Santos missed a 48-yarder with 9 seconds left.

Elijah McGuire ran for 45 yard with a TD and caught seven passes for 94 yards for the Ragin' Cajuns (9-4).

Terrance Broadway 12-of-19 through the air en route to 143 yards with a pair of interceptions.

Powell completed 10-of-21 throws for 223 yards in relief of Nick Montana for Tulane (7-6), which fell in its final home game at the Superdome.

Next year the Green Wave will begin play at the new Yulman Stadium in New Orleans.
