It’s possible Tulane will be playing for the American Athletic Conference’s West Division title in its season finale Nov. 24 against Navy at Yulman Stadium.

It’s not certain what time the game will kick off.

Usually, kickoff times for FBS conferences are finalized 12 days in advance, but The American’s television partners placed the entire league schedule on a “six-day hold” Monday. That means the game times and television outlets won’t be finalized until next weekend.

What is certain are the options. The game will either kick at 11 a.m. or 2:30 p.m. CST., and it will be televised by either ESPNU or CBS Sports Network.

Tulane (5-5, 4-2) takes a three-game winning streak to Houston Thursday with the West Division lead on the line. If the Green Wave wins and the other team tied for first in the division, SMU, loses to Memphis Friday, it will come home next weekend with a chance to win the division title outright and play for the conference championship on Dec. 1.

Even if the Wave loses to the Cougars, there is still plenty at stake in the finale, as Willie Fritz’s team would need a victory over the Midshipmen to become bowl eligible for the first time since 2013.

The American has three games on Friday and three games on Saturday on the final weekend of the regular season. The dates of the games cannot change, but the times for all six games are still to be announced.
