Rest in Pieces: 50 Demolished Sports Stadiums We Love

41. Tulane Stadium

Location: McAlister Drive, Tulane University, New Orleans
Opened: 1926
Demolished: 1980
Current status: Brown Field at Tulane
Nickname: "The Sugar Bowl"
Famed tenants: New Orleans Saints (NFL) (1967-1974), Tulane Green Wave (NCAA) (1926-1974), Sugar Bowl (event) (1935-1974)

Speaking of NOLA, the brick and concrete "Queen of Southern Stadiums" held the Sugar Bowl for 39 years before it moved to the Superdome. It also hosted New Orleans' first three Super Bowls (IV, VI, and IX) and was the site of Tom Dempsey's 63-yard field goal. Of course it was probably a worse place than the Superdome to ride out a hurricane.
