Dear Green Wave Fans,

What a Helluva Homecoming! It was wonderful spending time with so many of our great alums who descended on New Orleans, many for the first time in years. The Green Wave capped the weekend with a dramatic last-second victory over North Texas, ending our homecoming drought and setting off a great celebration in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

The Hullabaloo auction was another huge success. The biggest seller of the night was a visit to the set of Downton Abbey in London - and one Tulanian bid $16,000 for this, knowing the proceeds benefit Tulane student-athletes. While the on-campus auction is over, we still have the on-line auction running until Oct. 16, with over 150 items up for bid - and there are some amazing items. Also, do not miss your chance to win 2 tickets to the Super Bowl. Click here to purchase your tickets. Only 500 will be sold.

Thanks again to everyone who made Homecoming 2013 such a special weekend.

We've had a great response to the Reserve Your Seat campaign thus far. Only $50 per seat guarantees all non-season ticket holders a place in Yulman Stadium next season. Speaking of, many have asked about an Oct. 1 grand opening date. To date we've only used three of our 45 rain days, so we are on track to open for the entirety of the home schedule for 2014. The very latest date we will open is Oct. 1, so fingers crossed and sun keep shining!

We had a great weekend of sales as well in the Jill H. and Avram A. Glazer Family Club. Please visit www.YulmanStadium.com for an interactive view from the Glazer Family Club seats and updates on stadium progress. For more details call 504.314.CLUB or email stadium@tulane.edu to make your appointment in the Preview Center today.

We have another big weekend ahead. Football hosts East Carolina University Saturday in the Superdome at 2:30 p.m. We really need your support in the match-up between the two division leaders of Conference USA. Get your tickets here.

Also, the Swimming and Diving team takes on University of Arkansas-Little Rock on Saturday at 9:30 a.m. and our 17-2 Volleyball team returns home next Friday 7 p.m. vs. Southern Miss.

Roll Wave,

Rick Dickson
Director of Athletics - Tulane University

P.S. While the actual auction takes place Friday night, we have a wide array of incredible on-line items available now!
