Two former Green Wave football players — Ryan Griffin and Thakarius “BoPete” Keyes — were on teams that made it to the NFL Super Bowl championship in February. Former Tulane quarterback Griffin, in his sixth year in the NFL, was part of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Super Bowl LV team, serving as third-string backup quarterback to Tom Brady. Griffin spent his first two professional seasons on the New Orleans Saints’ practice squad. In his rookie season in the NFL, cornerback Keyes is on the Kansas City Chiefs team. https://tulane.it/superbowl-teams
Last year, it took the entire season of 12 games to become bowl eligible. This year, Tulane clinched bowl eligibility with a Nov. 1 homecoming victory against Tulsa — it’s ninth game of the season.
