TULSA, Okla. - Tulsa Head Football Coach Bill Blankenship held his first weekly press conference Friday, previewing next week's season opener against Tulane.

The Golden Hurricane opens the 2014 season against the Green Wave at 7 p.m. Aug. 28 at H.A. Chapman Stadium.

Senior safety Michael Mudoh and sophomore quarterback Dane Evans also appeared at the press conference to look ahead to the season and the Tulane game.

Thursday's season opener is the first contest for both teams as members of the American Athletic Conference. The home opener is the first for the Hurricane since 2006, and the first conference home game to begin a season since 1985.

The weekly press conference is normally held on Tuesdays, but was moved to Friday this week because of the Thursday game date.

Tulsa football season tickets, 3-game mini-pack plans, as well as single game tickets for the opener are on sale now. Go online at TulsaHurricane.com or contact the Tulsa athletic ticket office at 918.631.GoTU.
