The Duke Blue Devils and the Tulane Green Wave will open the 2015 season on Thursday night, The Herald-Sun has reported.
Tulane will host Duke at Yulman Stadium in New Orleans, Louisiana on Thursday, Sept. 3 and the game will be broadcast on the ESPN family of networks.
Duke and Tulane were originally scheduled to play on Saturday, Sept. 12, but the two schools agreed to move the game to the season-opener. Duke was scheduled to open the 2015 season at home against North Carolina Central, but the Eagles agreed to move that contest to Sept. 12.
The 2015 Duke-Tulane game is the third of a four-game series between the two schools. Duke won the first two games of the series, 48-27 in 2011 and 47-13 earlier this season, both in Durham.
The final game of the series is slated for 2019 in Durham.
In addition to playing Duke and NC Central next season, the Blue Devils host Northwestern on Sept. 19 and travel to Army on Oct. 10.
After opening the season against Duke, the Tulane Green Wave travel to face Georgia Tech on Sept. 12 and later visit Army on Nov. 14. Tulane needs one more game to complete their 2015 non-conference schedule.
