The Georgia Tech–Tulane football rivalry is an American college football rivalry between the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets and Tulane Green Wave. The rivalry began in 1916. Georgia Tech leads the series 37–13.
Series history[edit | edit source]
The first game took place on November 4, 1916 in Atlanta, Georgia. Tulane and Georgia Tech spent most of their athletic histories as members of the same conference: they were among the first to join the SIAA in 1894 then Georgia Tech left in 1921 and Tulane in 1922 to join the Southern Conference. Both schools moved yet again in 1932 to charter the Southeastern Conference, of which they were members until Tech's departure in 1963 to become independent. Tulane followed suit in 1966, but they played each other yearly until 1982. Georgia Tech is now a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference, while Tulane is a member of the American Athletic Conference. The rivalry was renewed on September 6, 2014, in the first football game played on Tulane's campus since Tulane Stadium was torn down in 1980.
