Three Green Wave Football Games Slated for National TV



July 23, 2010

NEW ORLEANS - Tulane's 2010 football schedule will feature three nationally-televised games, including one contest on ESPN2 and two on CBS College Sports, it was announced by the Conference USA office earlier in the week.

The Green Wave will host Southeastern Conference member Ole Miss on Sept. 11 at 8 p.m. CDT on ESPN2. Tulane visits Houston on Sept. 25 for a 2:30 p.m. CDT kickoff and will travel to Huntington, W. Va., to take on Marshall on Nov. 27 for an 11 a.m. CST kickoff.

The meeting with the Rebels will mark the sixth Tulane game to be aired on ESPN2 since joining Conference USA prior to the 1996 season.

The game also marks the second straight season and third in four years that ESPN2 will broadcast a game from the Louisiana Superdome. Last season, the Green Wave hosted BYU and played host to LSU in 2007.

The pair of games on CBS College Sports marks the 10th and 11th appearance since 2005 on the network that was formerly known as CSTV. The Green Wave faced Mississippi State and Navy in 2005, SMU and Marshall in 2006, Tulsa in 2007, SMU and Houston in 2008 and Army and Houston last season.

Tulane opens the 2010 season in a rare Thursday game on Sept. 2 against Southeastern Louisiana for a 7 p.m. CDT kickoff in the Louisiana Superdome.
