2018 Football Preview – AAC – Golden Hurricane
Looking for 2018 Tulsa Golden Hurricane predictions? The Golden Hurricane are going through a rebuild and it showed with the results on the field last year. They were a young team and they ended up only getting two wins. As bad as it looked last year there were still a few bright spots to take away from the team. A lot of young guys that struggled last year got good playing experience and that should help the team out this year.

2018 Tulsa Golden Hurricane Predictions: Team Strengths
Run Game Strong: Usually when you lose a running back that had 1500 yards that is a problem for the team going forward and although that is a big loss, this running game could actually be better this year for a few reasons.
Shamari Brooks is going to have his role increased, and he is a nice shifty back that is going to have expectations going into the season, and he should live up to them.
The offense line struggles against the pass rush, but running the ball is their strength and they are a veteran group.
Look for the Golden Hurricane to really rely on that run game especially early with some question marks surrounding the quarterback position.
Veteran Defense: Last year the defense was a bend don’t break type of affair. They allowed 529 yards per game last year, but that only resulted in giving up 29 points per game.
Seven starters from last year s team are back this year, and that should bode well for a defense that is actually much improved this year.
This isn’t a defense that is going to shut out teams, but it should be a lot better than last year.
2018 Tulsa Golden Hurricane Predictions: Team Weaknesses
Quarterback questions: The Golden Hurricane didn’t get good quarterback play last year, and this year there are still a ton of questions.
Who is going to start this year is a big question but whoever gets the nod needs to do a better job of getting the ball in the end zone.
This team had trouble scoring touchdowns last year, and that can’t be the case if this team wants to take the big step forward that they are hoping for.
Whoever starts at quarterback this year is going to be thrown to the Wolves and needs to respond early on.
Tough run defense: The one thing that the Golden Hurricane have struggled with over the years has been slowing down opponents ground games, and there isn’t going to be much changing that this year.
They are undersized up front, and I don’t expect that they are going to slow down much in terms of opponents rushing game.
Tulsa Golden Hurricane Prediction: 5-7
It’s going to be hard for the Golden Hurricane to be worse than last year, so the big question is exactly how much better then they will be then last year.
I think they will take a big step forward, but I don’t think it’s going to be enough to get them into a bowl game. I think they will finish with five wins, and one step away from that bowl berth.
