After No. 2 Oklahoma's nonconference game against Tulane was moved from New Orleans to Norman due to the devastation from Hurricane Ida, the Sooners went the extra mile to make the Green Wave feel at home. In addition to the usual OU branding around Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium, the program's facilities crew added the famous Green Wave logo at both 25-yard lines.
Tulane was set to host Oklahoma at Yulman Stadium in New Orleans on Saturday in one of the biggest home nonconference games in program history. But after several complications and outages on the Tulane campus, the football team and athletic department were forced to move all operations to Birmingham, Alabama. Classes at Tulane have also been canceled through at least Sept. 13.

In addition to the artistic gesture, the Sooners will still treat the Green Wave as the home team. Tulane will also keep the revenue from all ticket sales.
"In this extraordinarily difficult moment for the people of Louisiana, we want to do our small part by assisting Tulane with the game this weekend," Oklahoma president Joseph Harroz said. "While we regret that it's necessary for us to host it, we will welcome the Tulane family this Saturday with open arms and heavy hearts. We hope this act is one small way that we can help alleviate some of the stress the university is currently enduring."
