Tulane finds site for game

Associated Press

STARKVILLE, Miss. – The Mississippi State-Tulane football game scheduled for Sept. 17 will be played in Shreveport, La., Mississippi State officials said Thursday.

The game was scheduled for the Superdome in New Orleans, but the city and the facility were damaged last week by Hurricane Katrina.

Mississippi State said the game will be played at Independence Bowl Stadium and will be broadcast by College Sports Television.

“We fully understand the terrific strain Tulane University has been under in coping with this tragedy,” Mississippi State athletic director Larry Templeton said. “We are doing everything we can to assist Tulane in its hurricane recovery efforts.”

Tulane athletic teams will be based this fall at five universities.
