1965[edit]

The Green Wave was originally scheduled to open their season at home vs. Texas September 17, but one week prior to that date, Hurricane Betsy wreaked destruction upon New Orleans, bending the light towers at Tulane Stadium, leaving large tree limbs strewn across the campus and the surrounding neighborhood, and knocking out power throughout the city. As a result, the game was shifted to Austin and moved back one day.

The season concluded with Tulane sustaining its third 62-0 loss to LSU in the past eight seasons.
