GREENVILLE, N.C. -- Dominique Davis ran for two touchdowns and passed for another to lead East Carolina to a 34-13 win over Tulane on Saturday.

East Carolina (4-4, 3-1 Conference USA) won its third straight game, while Tulane (2-7, 1-4) lost for the second straight time under interim head coach Mark Hutson, who took over the Green Wave on Oct. 18.

Davis, who finished with 329 yards on 29-of-46 passing, scored on runs of 5 and 6 yards. His touchdown pass to Lance Lewis was for 1 yard. Mike Barbour hit field goals of 35 and 20 yards for the Pirates and Michael Dobson added a late touchdown run.

Tulane held a brief 10-7 led on a 7yard touchdown run by Orleans Darkwa with 13:34 left the second quarter. Darkwa rushed for 89 yards on 15 carries, while Green Wave quarterback Ryan Griffin completed 16 of 31 for 132 yards.
