New Orleans - The Tulane football team has finalized start times for the 2013 home portion of the schedule, while new Conference USA member North Texas will be this year's homecoming opponent on Oct. 5 and the Green Wave has also moved its 2013 season opener against Jackson State to Thursday, August 29 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, Tulane Director of Athletics Rick Dickson announced today.
Tulane will kick-off against Jackson State at 7 p.m., while its remaining five homes games will each begin at 2:30 p.m.
In an effort to accommodate holiday schedules for both Green Wave fans and the student body, Tulane Athletics has opted to move the Jackson State game up two days prior to the start of the Labor Day holiday.
TU will appear on television three times during the 2013 season, including a national televised game at Louisiana Tech on Thursday, September 12 on Fox Sports at 6:30 p.m., and will play a pair of local and regional contests on Cox Sports Television, including South Alabama on Sept. 7 and C-USA rival Tulsa on Oct. 26.
Game times have not been set for the Green Wave's remaining five road contests this season.
