Dec. 1, 2013, marked the 40th anniversary of one of the great moments in the history of Tulane athletics: Tulane’s 14-0 victory over LSU before 86,598 fans in Tulane Stadium. It was Tulane’s first win over its bitter rival in 24 years, and one of the biggest Louisiana sports stories of the year. Today, with Tulane and LSU no longer playing annually and no longer the rivals they once were, it’s difficult to understand how much the game meant, but among diehard Greenie fans, it ranks as perhaps Tulane’s biggest football victory of all time.
In honor of the 40th anniversary of that great game, this week’s question looks back at Green Wave history: What’s your greatest Tulane athletics memory? Were you there at Tulane Stadium in 1973? Or at Tiger Stadium in ’82? Maybe it was the Tulane baseball team’s victory over LSU in 2001 to make it to its first College World Series. Let us know what you think was the biggest moment in Green Wave sports. The best response we receive will win a Freeman Centennial T-shirt!
