Goodyear Green Wave mascot hits the road, arrives on Tulane campus

The life-size Green Wave tire art sculpture created by Goodyear is now on display in the Jill H. and Avram A. Glazer Family Club at Yulman Stadium.

Goodyear tire artists created the sculpture in honor of Tulane’s appearance in the 87th Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic on Jan. 2. Read more about the sculpture on the Tulane news site.

“We are thrilled that the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Green Wave Tire Art has come home to the Jill H. and Avram A. Glazer Family Club,” said Ben Weiner Director of Athletics Chair Troy Dannen. “The fine folks at Goodyear and the Cotton Bowl provided a first-class experience for our student athletes, coaches and staff, and it is our pleasure to have a piece of that be part of Yulman Stadium.”

Goodyear said the sculpture weighs 315 pounds and that 215 of their tires were used to create it.

Green Wave fans can see the sculpture this Saturday when the Tulane community and Green Wave fans gather to welcome the Tulane Football team back to campus.

A celebration in honor of the team’s magical season and historic Cotton Bowl win will take place Saturday, Jan. 21, at Tailgate Village on Berger Family Lawn at noon. The celebration includes a parade, a live band, food trucks and interactive activities, as well as a ceremony featuring Coach Fritz and the team. This event is free and open to all Tulane fans.
