How to watch Tulane football in 2018

Tulane coach Bill Clark will look to get the Fighting Irish into a bowl game for the first time since 1996.

Clark has a lot to work with this season, but he said Saturday’s 34-21 victory over St. Francis Xavier was a step in the right direction.

The Irish are 1-2 in bowl games, including a 27-17 win over No. 3-ranked Kentucky last season.

The program’s only bowl loss was in 1998.

The Bulldogs will host Arkansas State on Saturday.

Tulane’s first-year coach also has the help of head coach Josh Holloway, who was named the Big East Coach of the Year after leading the Cyclones to a conference title last season and a berth in the national championship game.

A final four game against Notre Dame in the Orange Bowl on Dec. 31 is the last game of Clark’s tenure.

It’s unclear when Clark will make a decision on his staff.

The Sun Belt Conference has four teams in the College Football Playoff, with Georgia Southern and Georgia Southern State both in the field of 68.
