Surprising Tulane Green Wave at 6-1, enters Week 8 AP Top 25 Polls

Oct 16, 2022

NEW ORLEANS – Tulane Football, fresh off a 45-31 road victory at USF Saturday, found itself ranked 25th in the both the Associated Press and AFCA Coaches Poll polls Sunday afternoon.

The Green Wave (6-1 overall, 3-0 American Athletic Conference) is in the national rankings for the first time since its 12-0 campaign of 1998, which saw the program finish at seventh in both polls.

Tulane nearly dented the rankings on October 13, 2019 following another 5-1 start. On the heels of a 49-7 win over UConn, the Green Wave checked in one spot adrift in the Week 8 AP Poll with 55 points and two back in the USA Today Coaches Poll at 76 points.

Tulane is back in action Saturday against Memphis (4-3, 2-2) for a 2:30 p.m. CT kick in a game that will be carried on ESPN2.
