Head on down to the comments section to give us your thoughts on the game and everything else throughout the day!
With Hurricane Ida displacing most of Southeast Louisiana and moving this weekend’s contest to Norman, the Oklahoma Sooners and Tulane Green Wave are set for an unconventional event in which Willie Fritz’s program will officially be the home team. The fact that this is even taking place is a testament to each of these two athletic departments, and they each deserve an emphatic tip of the cap for their efforts.
Bringing a little bit of the Big Easy to the Palace.

Before we go any further, I wanted to share a link to The Greater New Orleans Foundation’s Hurricane Ida Relief Fund, which is the charity Tulane endorses.

No Hand Grenades on Bourbon Street. No beers at The Boot. No live music on Frenchmen Street. No burgers at Port of Call. No bad decisions (or at least fewer bad decisions). No bachelor party in New Orleans for yours truly.
We might not be enjoying the opening of football season down in New Orleans, but I’m as excited for this game as any in quite some time. OU fans are getting a true “Party at the Palace” for the first time since November of 2019, and I’m sure as hell not taking that for granted.
Happy game day, Sooner Nation!
