The first game took place on October 25, 1902, in New Orleans, Louisiana. Both teams played in the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association (SIAA) until leaving in 1922 to form the Southern Conference. Tulane and Auburn were charter members of the Southeastern Conference (SEC) in 1932 and played annually until 1955. The rivalry was renewed in 2006. The rivalry was notable for its back-and-forth nature, featuring 3 scoreless ties in a row from 1936 to 1938.[6]

Notable games[edit | edit source]

1932: Hitchcock upsets Green Wave[edit | edit source]

Led by All-American Jimmy Hitchcock, Auburn upset the Green Wave 19–7. It was called by one sports editor "the most glamorous football conquest in the annals of Auburn football." Hitchcock scored first when he intercepted a pass from Tulane's All-American, Don Zimmerman, and ran 60 yards for a touchdown, with the key block provided by Dave Ariail. The second touchdown was a 63-yard run from Hitchcock out of a punt formation.[7]

1955: Tulane upsets #8 Auburn[edit | edit source]

In the last matchup until 2006, Gene Newton threw two touchdowns in a 27–13 upset of 8th ranked Auburn.[8]
