Tulane Rival Game

A team of Tulane students and Special Olympics athletes will compete against LSU students and Special Olympics athletes for bragging rights and the coveted Unified Rivalry Cup. The game will take place at Fogelman Arena in Devlin Fieldouse on Tulane’s Uptown campus, right before the Tulane Women’s Basketball Game against South Florida.

You are invited to cheer on the teams and be a “Fan in the Stands.” If we pack the gym, ESPN might come to New Orleans to cover the game.
