Forte Returns to New Orleans

As the Chicago Bears head into New Orleans to take on the Saints, sportswriters/sportscasters have pointed out that this will be a homecoming of sorts for running back Matt Forte. Forte attended Tulane University in New Orleans from 2004-2007.

Forte and Mewelde Moore go head to head on most every Tulane rushing record. Moore played just before Forte arrived at Tulane; he is a smaller stockier back who has been used more sparingly in the pros. Forte holds the single-season rushing and receiving record (2420), the single season rushing record (2127), the single game rushing record (342), and the record for rushing touchdowns (39). He also scored five touchdowns in two games, four touchdowns in one game, and three touchdowns in one game. At Sporting Chance Press, we believe Forte will be remembered at Tulane for a long time.

More on Forte's Tulane football records.

Besides all the accolades Tulane gets for being an excellent research university in New Orleans, it is also the largest employer offering 4,400 jobs to the community.
