Tulane has won each of its last seven season-opening games dating back to the start of the season. Since the start of the program, Tulane is all-time in the first game of the year.
The Green Wave are looking to claim the season-opening series for the second consecutive year and eighth time in the last nine seasons.
Friday opens a stretch of eight consecutive home games to start the year against the Colonials, Lamar and Ole Miss over the course of the next two weeks.
Coach Jewett on opening weekend and looking at the season… "Excited. Anytime you reach this time of the year, last year is last year and this year is this year. I think all of our anticipations, and our desires, is to win more. We've talked a lot about it, and we've been rehearsing it more in scrimmages and in daily competition.
We've been trying to drive that competitive meter and I feel like the kids are ready. It is a city built on tradition and resiliency. The lessons Green Wave student-athletes have learned through their connection with this university and city have BUILT doctors, lawyers, business leaders, conference champions, all-conference players, All-Americans, professional athletes and NCAA tournament teams.
The city of New Orleans has shaped us into who we are today.
We are One City. We are Tulane.
