Saints owners Tom and Gayle Benson were honorary captains at Tulane's Homecoming Game in Yulman Stadium on Saturday, October 29, 2016.

New Orleans Saints owners Tom and Gayle Benson joined Tulane University as honorary captains during the coin toss of the university's homecoming game Saturday, Oct. 29.

In celebration of the Saints' 50th season, the team has commissioned a plaque that will be placed on the exterior of Yulman Stadium. The Bensons and Saints organization have long supported Tulane, where the Saints played in Tulane Stadium from 1967 to 1974. Yulman Stadium (and Benson Field) is the home to Tulane football as of 2014.

"We'd like to thank Tulane for including us in their homecoming festivities and commemorating the original home of the Saints," Owner Tom Benson said. "It was an honor to represent the university as an honorary captain and we're thankful for the relationship our teams have with the great people at Tulane."
