MSU announced a home-and-home series with Tulane beginning this season in New Orleans, La.
The Bulldogs and Green Wave will meet Dec. 6 this season, while the two teams will meet at Humphrey Coliseum during the 2015-16 season.
This will be the 93rd meeting between MSU and Tulane, with the Bulldogs owning a 54-38 advantage. The last meeting came in the Nokia Sugar Bowl Classic in 2003, with the Bulldogs taking a 72-50 victory.
“Tulane provides yet another high major opponent for us with their move to the American Athletic Conference,” MSU head coach Rick Ray said in a school release. “The Green Wave will prove to be a great opponent for us and our fan base. Bulldog fans on the coast and in the New Orleans area will get a chance to see us play and hopefully provide a nice environment for us on the road.”
This is the third major conference opponent Ray has scheduled for the next two seasons. The Bulldogs will also play Atlantic Coast Conference foe Florida State and Pac-12 opponent Oregon State during the 2014-15 and 2015-16 seasons.
