We have reached week six of the college football season which means a lot of conference showdowns. In this game it’s an AAC showdown on Thursday night when the Tulsa Golden Hurricane make the trip to TDECU Stadium to take on the Houston Cougars.
Last year when these two teams played the Golden Hurricane came out ahead 45-17.
Tulsa Golden Hurricane
The Tulsa Golden Hurricane got off to a nice start beating Central Arkansas but since that point they have failed to win a game, and they have actually really struggled.
They played well against Texas but since that they have failed to cover the last two spreads and they are going to have their hands full in this game.
The Golden Hurricane are a run first team but their quarterback play has really struggled. Luke Skipper has thrown for 716 yards, four touchdowns and six interceptions.
In this game a few things are going to happen. The defense is going to need to play really well to start and they need to slow down the pace of play.
Skipper also is going to need to air this game out, and stop turning the ball over. If he starts to turn the ball over, it’s going to be an issue.
On the other side of this matchup is the Houston Cougars who have had a really nice season with the only loss coming against a good Texas Tech Red Raiders squad.
The Cougars like many teams in the past love to run up the score and come into this game averaging over 52 points per game.
On the defensive side of the ball they aren’t strong giving up over 30 points and 500 yards per game, but with the way the offense has scored, it really hasn’t mattered.
In this game it’s going to come down to a pretty simple concept, they need to try and run up the score and try to make the Golden Hurricane catch up.
If this game becomes a shootout,Tulsa is going to have a really hard time catching up.
