Tulane and LSU end football series
Posted by ESPN.com’s Graham Watson
Tulane and LSU have mutually agreed to end their football series after this season, Tulane University director of athletics Rick Dickson announced Tuesday.
The teams will play the fourth of what was to be a 10-game series on Oct. 31 at Tiger Stadium. The teams also agreed to play one final game in New Orleans on a future, undetermined date.
The Tulane-LSU series dates back to 1893, the first year of varsity football for both schools. LSU leads the series 68-22-7 and Tulane hasn’t defeated the Tigers since 1982. Tulane has suffered 17 consecutive losses since that time.
