The Tulsa Golden Hurricane look to continue their heads-up success over Tulane, having won 11 of the 13 meetings since 2005. The Green Wave are 0 – 6 in Tulsa in their short history, and have lost four of their last five games entering week 9.
The Green Wave have lost 8 of their last 9 road games over the last two seasons, and are 0 – 3 thus far in 2018. Tulane let a 23 – 14 fourth quarter lead over SMU evaporate last weekend, en route to their 5th loss of the season.
Senior QB Jonathan Banks completed only 14 passes in the eventual 27 – 23 home loss to the Mustangs.
Things have not been much better in Tulsa, Oklahoma this season, as the Green Wave must now win all 5 of their remaining games to even hope for a bowl bid.
Since losing Luke Skipper at QB to a back injury in the Temple game, the Golden Hurricane are 0 – 3 and got completely shut-out last weekend. Arkansas held Tulane scoreless in a 23 – 0 home win, which now leaves the Canes facing a six-game losing slide.
Tulane Green Wave
The Green Wave offense didn’t exactly do its part to keep their fourth quarter lead safe last weekend against SMU. The defense certainly did all they could to keep them in the game, but it wasn’t enough in the end. Tulane went 3-and-out on three of their last four possessions of the game, and fumbled the game away on their last drive of the night.
Jonathan Banks had issues holding on the to ball all evening long, fumbling three times while losing two of them to the SMU defense. Banks ended the night 14 for 22, had 153 passing yards and an interception to add to the three fumbles.
It’s amazing they only lost the game by 4 points when you add in the 10 penalties, while only converting 3 of 15 third down attempts.
The weather certainly affected the field conditions, as there was an hour and forty minute rain/lightning delay that stopped play late in the first quarter.
Tulsa Golden Hurricane
Sophomore QB Seth Boomer took over for Luke Skipper when he went down with a season-ending back injury. As much fun as the announcers are having his Boomer’s name, he is not exactly proving he is ready to play at the collegiate level.
Despite Tulsa giving South Florida a scare two weeks ago, Boomer has struggled mightily passing the ball.
He has a 35.1 completion percentage, and went 8 for 25 last weekend against Arkansas in the 23 – 0 loss. Only four wide receivers caught footballs last weekend, with one completion going to his RB, Corey Taylor.
Sophomore wide receiver Keylon Stokes led all pass catchers with 3 grabs for 74 yards. Stokes has been providing his skills running, catching and returning kicks this season as well.
The Hurricane defense tried to keep them in the game this past weekend, causing 3 fumbles while holding the Hogs to only 131 passing yards.
A total listed at anything over 50 sounds almost too good to be true in this contest. We have a 50.5 to work with on this total, and it is going to be where the play is made.
