Alabama vs.Tulane

 
  Date: 11/11/1939  
  Score: 0-13  
  Alabama vs. Tulane The Crimson Tide was simply just no match for Tulane in this contest as the Greenies defeated the Tide 13-0 in front of 50,000 New Orleans fans. After a Tulane touchdown in the second quarter it looked as though Alabama was going to get back into the game. They took the kickoff and returned it out to near midfield but a clipping penalty pinned Bama very deep in its own territory and a partially blocked punt sailed out of bounds at just the 19 yard line and Tulane ran it in three plays later for its second touchdown of the game. Alabama finished the 1939 season with a record of 5-3-1 for Coach Frank Thomas.
