Kane Wommack vs Willie Fritz
First and foremost, it is imperative to recognize Tulane’s impressive performance during 2022. The Green Wave finished strong by winning four out of their final five games including an exciting upset of 10th-ranked USC in Cotton Bowl. This success carried over into their preparations for the 2023 season as they are confident of taking care of business in their inaugural game versus TCU on August 1, 2023.
Tulane’s offensive prowess cannot be underestimated. Last season, they averaged 34.8 points per game to demonstrate their ability to score big numbers on the scoreboard. Led by quarterback Michael Pratt (nearly 40 total touchdowns last season), who returned as one of Tulane’s offensive leaders this year with an abundance of weapons such as Shaadie Clayton-Johnson the Green Wave offense is expected to maintain its high-scoring ways in 2023.
Tulane’s defense allowed an average of 23.9 points per game in 2022, yet remained an effective unit. While they might have struggled against the run at times, their overall defensive capabilities cannot be underestimated. Now with a new season approaching, Tulane has had enough time to address its weaknesses as part of their depth and coaching on defense – something they will do during conference play!
On the other side of the field, South Alabama faces an immense opponent in Tulane despite posting an impressive 10-win season last year. Tulane’s balanced offensive attack led by Michael Pratt will test South Alabama’s defense, and their loss of key defensive players could leave them vulnerable against Tulane’s assault on offense.

One key matchup aspect to keep an eye on in this matchup is Tulane’s ground game against South Alabama’s run defense, as both were nationally renowned last season – South Alabama had one of the top run defenses at sixth overall; but with Tulane boasting one of the strongest rushing attacks and South Alabama shedding several of their top tacklers from previous seasons, this could become an opportunity for Tulane.
Forecasting a Tulane Victory Based on all these considerations, it becomes apparent that Tulane is well-placed to secure victory against South Alabama in their season opener. With their strong offense, solid defense, and momentum from last year’s success, the Green Wave has all the ingredients for an emphatic performance against their opponent – South Alabama certainly will not go quietly into their respective season openers, yet Tulane’s depth and capabilities give them an advantage here. As the 2023 season kicks off and continues apace keep an eye out on Tulane as they strive for an impressive start and a successful campaign ahead.

South Alabama Jaguars vs Tulane Green Wave Betting Pick
Statistics from both teams’ previous seasons demonstrate Tulane’s superior offensive prowess. In 2022, they averaged 34.8 points per game on offense under Michael Pratt as they put up big scores on the scoreboard and ran strong rushing attacks to put pressure on South Alabama’s defense. This offensive firepower could ultimately overwhelm their opposition’s defensive capabilities and be devastatingly effective.
South Alabama boasted of defensive excellence within their conference, yet faced challenges against non-conference opponents such as Tulane’s multifaceted offense and its running game. Pratt can both pass and run effectively; and could soon discover new offensive stars who may make this matchup pivotal. In any event, Tulane stands a good chance at victory here.
