The New Orleans Bowl will definitely have a Louisiana flavor to it this year.
On Tuesday it was announced that Tulane has accepted an invitation to play in the New Orleans Bowl where it will face Louisiana-Lafayette. The Ragin' Cajuns will be defending their New Orleans Bowl title once more, as they've won the last two games.
As for Tulane, this will be the Green Wave's first bowl game since the Hawaii Bowl in 2002. Curtis Johnson's team finished the 2013 season at 7-5 after ten straight losing seasons.
However, while Tulane is going bowling, it won't be traveling anywhere to do so. The game is played at the Superdome in New Orleans, which is where the Green Wave have been playing their home games since 1975. Though while this is essentially a home game for Tulane, this might be the last time they play in the Superdome as they're scheduled to move into a new stadium on campus next season.
