NEW ORLEANS – The Tulane University football team announced today that it will open its 2019 campaign on Thursday, August 29 as it welcomes FIU to Yulman Stadium. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.

Tulane will look to build off the momentum from its seven-win season in 2018, which included a 41-24 victory over Louisiana-Lafayette in the Cure Bowl. The win over ULL was the Green Wave’s first bowl win since 2002.
