NEW ORLEANS – Tulane University football will once again take center stage this fall, as it welcomes the University of Oklahoma to Yulman Stadium for a nationally-televised matchup on ABC, beginning at 11 a.m. (CT). The Green Wave’s meeting with the Sooners is one of five game times that were announced today in conjunction with the American Athletic Conference and its television partners.

Tulane’s matchup with the Sooners will mark the second-consecutive season the Green Wave have been featured on ABC’s national platform. Prior to Tulane’s appearance on ABC last year at home against Navy, the Green Wave last played on ABC during their 1980 season opener against Southern Miss. 

In addition to its appearance on ABC, Tulane also will be featured in a pair of Thursday night primetime contests on ESPN where it will faceoff against Houston (Oct. 7) at home and SMU (Oct. 21) on the road. Both games will kickoff at 6:30 p.m. CT.

Tulane’s matchup with Houston will mark the fourth straight season the Green Wave have faced Houston on national television. 

On Sept. 19, Tulane will travel to Oxford, Mississippi where it will take on Ole Miss at 7 p.m. CT. Tulane’s meeting with the Rebels will mark the Green Wave’s first trip to Oxford since 2000. The two teams met on a regular basis during Tulane’s membership in the SEC.

The league also announced that Tulane’s second home game of the season against Morgan State on Sept. 11 will be aired on ESPN+ and will kickoff at 6 p.m. (CT).
