Thirty-five years after the last point was scored in Tulane stadium, football returns to campus as Yulman Stadium hosts its first game Saturday.
The Green Wave takes on Georgia Tech at 3 p.m.
Workers are still putting the finishing touches on the $72 million stadium, but it is expected to be ready for Saturday's game.
Single tickets for the first game at Yulman sold out weeks ago with less than 500 season tickets remaining.
With thousands of potential customers streaming into Yulman Stadium, nearby businesses are hoping for large crowds.
