The Tulsa Golden Hurricane are travelling to across the Mississippi this week to take on the Tigers in Memphis.
These two are in 2nd and 3rd places respectively in the American Conference, and this game could end up having serious bowl and conference implications.
The Golden Hurricane are coming off a 50-27 beatdown of Tulane at home last week.
The Tigers, on the other hand, just suffered a disappointing 42-28 loss at #24 Navy. Both are currently 5-2 and believe they will get win number six Saturday.
Tulsa Golden Hurricane
The Tulsa offense has been unstoppable in some games this year.
They are led by senior quarterback Dane Evans who passed for 236 yards and three touchdowns in a dominant performance last week against Tulsa.
On the year, Evans has thrown for 1,736 yards along with 15 touchdowns. However, he also has eight interceptions.
Tulsa also ranks 27th in the nation in rushing with 223.7 yards per game on the ground. Most importantly, they convert all those yards into 39.4 points per game which is 19th in the country.
However, the defense has not been great. Tulsa allows 32.1 points per game on defense, ranking 93rd.
The Tigers started out the year strong but have had some bumps along the way.
They won three straight to open the season before falling to Ole Miss 48-28 in Week 4. Then they won two more before suffering a similar loss at the hands of #24 Navy last week.
Junior quarterback Riley Ferguson has been great this season, passing for 1,929 yards with 14 touchdowns and six interceptions.
282.4 passing yards per game ranks the Tigers 29th nationwide.
They are tied for 22nd in points per game with 38.4 and 36th in scoring defense with 22.6 points allowed per game.

Free Week 9 NCAA Football Prediction
These two teams are very similar and pretty evenly matched. Tulsa’s offense may be slightly better, but Memphis’s defense and home-field may balance that out. I expect Memphis to win, but not by more than one score.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Tulsa +7.5
Navy scored more on the Tigers last week than anyone expected them to, but expect them to rebound at home. Either way, I’d take Tulsa and the points.
Week 9 Free Score Prediction: Tulsa 35 – Memphis 38
