MONROE, La. - ULM Athletics Director Bobby Staub announced Tuesday that ULM has signed a home-and-home football contact with Tulane that will send the Warhawks to New Orleans in 2012 and will bring the Green Wave to Monroe in 2013.

"Any time we can sign a home-and-home deal with a regional FBS team it is a positive for our program and our fan base," Staub said. "The series provides our fans with an exciting road trip and a six-game home schedule in 2013. The New Orleans area always produces a lot of talented football players and this is a great opportunity to expose ULM football to that part of the state."

ULM will play Tulane in the Louisiana Superdome on Sept. 29, 2012, and the Green Wave will return the trip to Malone Stadium on Sept. 14, 2013. In addition to a four-game Sun Belt Conference schedule, the Warhawks also host Grambling State in 2013 as the Tigers come to Malone Stadium on Sept. 7.

The Warhawks and Green Wave have met just two previous times with the last game coming in 2008 when ULM traveled down to New Orleans; Tulane played in Monroe in 2002.

The Warhawks wrap up spring practice on Saturday with their annual Maroon & Gold Spring Game at Malone Stadium at 11:30 a.m. Admission to the game is free.
