The Tulane Green Wave won their opening game against South Alabama with a final score of 27-24.

The Green Wave had a solid defense that supported their offensive unit. Michael Pratt did well from the quarterback spot as he covered 142 yards. Pratt went 8 for 18 in his passing attempts and had two touchdowns for the team.
