The Tulsa Golden Hurricane will travel to Nippert Stadium in Cincinnati for an American Athletic Conference battle versus the No. 2-ranked (AP Poll) Cincinnati Bearcats. This game will have a national spotlight as College Gameday will be on campus for this matchup.
Cincinnati comes in with an undefeated 8-0 record, but the Bearcats will enter the week with a chip on their shoulder after being snubbed by the College Football Playoff committee. Cincinnati sits in 6th in the CFP Top-25 rankings, behind three one-loss teams.
Meanwhile, Tulsa is hoping to bounce back after snapping a two-game winning streak with a close loss at home versus Navy.
Tulsa Golden Hurricane
Tulsa snapped a two-game streak last week with a disappointing 20-17 loss at home against Navy. Quarterback Davis Brin finished 12-of-23 passing for 165 yards with a touchdown and an interception on the day while Juancarlos Santana caught 7 passes for 109 yards in the loss.
It’s been an up and down season for Brin, who is in his first year as a full-time starter. The 6-foot-2 junior has completed 57.8 percent of his passes for 2,080 yards with 11 touchdowns and 11 interceptions this season. He’s also had some trouble taking care of the football during conference play, throwing 6 interceptions in just 4 AAC games.
On defense, Tulsa has given up 30.9 points per game, good for 100th in the FBS. The Golden Hurricane have also allowed 396 yards of total offense per game, including 162.4 yards per game on the ground, which ranks 83rd in the FBS.
Cincinnati avoided an upset with a 31-12 win on the road against Tulane last week. The Bearcats led by only two points at halftime but shut the Green Wave offense out during the second half to escape with the win.
Quarterback Desmond Ridder completed 17-of-27 passes for 227 yards with 3 touchdowns and an interception on the day. Running back Jerome Ford rushed for 65 yards and a score and added a late 26-yard receiving touchdown.
Ridder is still in the Heisman conversation despite not putting up the same kind of offensive production as other Heisman hopefuls. The 6-foot-4 senior has completed 63.6 percent of his passes for 1,847 yards with 18 touchdowns and only 4 interceptions this season.
Jerome Ford has helped carry the load on offense as well. The junior running back has racked up 864 rushing yards with 15 total touchdowns (14 rushing) this season.
On defense, Cincinnati has given up 14.3 points per game, the second-lowest mark in the nation. The Bearcats have limited opposing teams to just 294.5 yards of total offense, sixth in the country, including just 154.9 passing yards per game, good for fourth best in the FBS.

4* Free Week 10 NCAA Betting Pick: Cincinnati -23.5 & OVER
It’s hard not to like Cincinnati to cover the spread in this game. The Bearcats were disrespected by the CFP Committee last week and clearly they need to be their opponents handily if they want any help to get back into the playoff picture.
Meanwhile, Tulsa has been playing its best football of the season but it is coming off of a hard-fought loss at home against Navy. The Golden Hurricane have also struggled against the run, which doesn’t bode well against a balanced Cincinnati offense.
Take the Bearcats to make a statement by covering the spread in this game on Saturday.
