Full house – On Jan 16, 1972, Tulane Stadium hosted Super Bowl VI, in which the Dallas Cowboys defeated the Miami Dolphins 24-3. A crowd of 81,023 packed the stadium, the second of three Super Bowls on the campus of Tulane University in New Orleans. Dr. Ken Adatto, who grew up within walking distance of the venue, recalls it as "a unique place to visit."
Green day – Tulane Stadium's record attendance of 86,598 was set on Dec. 1, 1973, when the Green Wave upset No. 8 LSU 14-0. It remains the largest crowd to watch a Tulane home game.
Roaring Twenties – Built in 1926, Tulane Stadium, located on Tulane University's campus in the Uptown section of New Orleans, boasted an initial capacity of 35,000.
Bigger ambitions – By 1939, the Tulane Stadium had undergone a second expansion, increasing its capacity to 69,000.
Impressive home – At this 1955 Homecoming Day game, Tulane Stadium held 80,735, one of the largest capacities in the country. After construction in 1926 it underwent four extensions in the next 50 years to accommodate the university's then-powerful football program as well as the annual Sugar Bowls it hosted.
Give us a Wave – The Tulane Green Wave football program was part of the vaunted Southeastern Conference from 1932 until 1966, winning three conference titles. It is currently a member of the American Athletic Conference.
What's the score? – Tulane Stadium's scoreboard -- famous for its confusing layout -- was a signature feature of the old facility. It was salvaged by a Tulane employee before the stadium's demolition in 1979.
Keeping up a facade – The original red brick front of Tulane Stadium withstood the city's harsh elements far better than the steel grandstands built as seating extensions in later years. The costly upkeep to prevent the steel's erosion eventually led to the decision to tear the stadium down.
