The 1926 Tulane Green Wave football team represented Tulane University during the 1926 college football season. Spirits were high to begin the season as Irish Levy was the only member of the 1925 line to leave, but the losses in the backfield of Lester Lautenschlaeger, Peggy Flournoy, and Fred Lamprecht proved to be costly.[1] Captain Harry P. Gamble was All-Southern.
