The Tulane Green Wave football team returned to Yulman Stadium following Hurricane Ida on Saturday, Sept. 25, to play against the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). It was the Green Wave’s first game of the season held on the uptown campus since Ida caused Tulane Athletics to relocate team operations to Birmingham, Alabama. Students, who returned to campus over the weekend, cheered on the team and welcomed them back to home play. The final score of the game was Tulane-21 and UAB-28.
