New Orleans - The 2013 football season will be a historic one for the Green Wave as Tulane will be playing its final year in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. With kickoff of the 38th season in the historic facility slated for Thursday, Aug. 29 against Jackson State, Tulane Athletics will hold a special celebration throughout the year to look back on the top moments and best players since moving to the Superdome in 1975.

From the win over Ole Miss in the Wave's inaugural game in the Superdome to the undefeated season of 1998 to the record-setting ballgame against Rice last year when Ryan Griffin and Cairo Santos set Tulane records for most passing yards and longest field goal, the turf in downtown New Orleans has seen more than its fair share of memorable moments.

Now, Tulane fans have a chance to submit their nominations for the most memorable "Doments" and student-athletes from over the last four decades. To participate in the season-long celebration, Tulane Athletics asks you to fill out your nominees for the All-Dome Team as well as the top moments in Green Wave Superdome history.

Fans can submit and vote on their favorite "Doment" and All-Dome Team online at ww.tulanegreenwave.com/38inthedome, or through the Green Wave's social media sites, Facebook and Twitter. Voting for the top "Doments" will be open for the first three weeks of August and the top six will be revealed at each of Tulane's six home games. The "All-Dome Team" will be open to votes throughout the entire season and unveiled during the last home game versus UTEP on Nov. 23.



Fans are also encouraged to share their favorite photos while at the Superdome during a Tulane game. Photos will be posted to the website's media gallery for everyone to enjoy. Fan photos can be sent to Tulane Athletics or shared through our social media networks using #38intheDome and/or #Doment.
