Southern Football: Practice heats up for Tulane with home football opener looming

NEW ORLEANS -- Preparation for the 2016 home opener heated up, literally, as the Tulane football team practiced for just over two hours at Yulman Stadium on Tuesday morning.

The Green Wave (0-1, 0-0 American West) braved the hot Louisiana sun with a morning workout in light pads and shorts. First-year head coach Willie Fritz’ squad got down to business with the team’s home opener against Southern (0-1, 0-0 SWAC West) just four days away. Kickoff for Saturday’s matchup is set for 7 p.m. on ESPN3.

“It was a little warm out there today,” said Fritz. “We just have to fight through it. It’s just the way of the world. There’s nothing we can do about. We just have to go out there and practice. Some of the guys had a great practice and some had a little difficult practice.”

Fritz and the rest of the coaching staff hopes practice makes perfect as the Olive and Blue are working hard to notch that first win of the season in front of what is projected to be a capacity crowd under the lights at Yulman on Saturday night.
