NEW ORLEANS – The Conference USA football game between Tulane and Louisville has been postponed due to weather conditions caused by Hurricane Ivan, officials of the schools announced Tuesday. The extremely strong hurricane is expected to hit the Gulf Coast late Wednesday evening or early Thursday morning.

The Tulane-Louisville game will be rescheduled for the weekend of December 3-4 in the Superdome, the next open date for both teams.

"With the uncertainty of the effect of the storm on the city, we felt postponing the game was the best decision for the safety of our student-athletes, as well as any fans," said Rick Dickson, Tulane Athletic Director. "I have been in constant communication with (Athletic Director) Tom Jurich of Louisville and he has been 100 percent supportive." Tulane University has cancelled classes and will be closed Wednesday and Thursday, while the entire New Orleans area is under a voluntary evacuation. All practices and meetings for the football team have been cancelled and arrangements have been made for all Tulane student-athletes to evacuate or take shelter according to the Tulane University guidelines.

Tickets for Saturday's game will be honored on the rescheduled date and all game promotions scheduled for Sept. 18 will take place on the new date.
