One week later, I was in Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge watching 3-7 Tulane beat 6th ranked, Orange Bowl bound LSU 31-28. Even my brother, who went to USM, said it was the best game that he's ever seen.

That's an astonishing two-fer. Just curious, why were you in San Francisco one week and Baton Rouge the next, with Thanksgiving in between? 04-cheers

BTW, i remember 11/27/82. I was living in Tampa then and skipped watching college football to attend a concert by The Who in Orlando. The B52s and Joan Jett opened. It was at the Tangerine Bowl, which I guess links it to college football, LOL.

Even though Tulane was 3-7 they had a nice run in the late 70s into the early 80s and had a really good program and a tough schedule usually. I'm pretty sure they beat LSU a couple of years before that 82 game as well.

I looked it up. Tulane beat LSU in 79, 81 and 82
