The Tulane University community gathered for a pep rally on Wednesday afternoon to celebrate and cheer on the 18th-ranked Green Wave football team ahead of its American Athletic Conference Championship game, which will take place on Saturday, Dec. 3, at 3 p.m. in Yulman Stadium.

The team will face off against the 22nd-ranked University of Central Florida. Saturday’s game will be Tulanes first-ever appearance in the AAC Championship. With a win, Green Wave Football will make program history and likely earn a spot in a New Years Six bowl game.

The game will be aired live on ABC. (Tickets are available for puchase on the Tulane Athletics website).
