Tulsa Golden Hurricane
The Tulsa Golden Hurricane have had a disappointing season to say the last, and come into this game with only two wins, but one of those was a huge upset.
Two games ago they took on the Houston Cougars at home, and were 13.5 point underdogs. They had a really good offensive and defensive performance though, and that led to a 45-17 defeat, and probably the best win this team will have all year.
Last game though, they went back to struggling against the UCONN Huskies. They came in as four point favorites, but ended up losing 20-14.
The offense went back to the lackluster performances they have grown used to this year, and that led to another bad defeat.
For the Golden Hurricanes most of their success is on the ground. They come into this game averaging 262 yards per game on the ground compared to 182 through the air.
The key to victory in this game for the Golden Hurricane is they need to get out to a fast start offensively. They need to use a fast start to build momentum and hopefully that can be enough to pull of another huge upset.
On the other side of this match up is the SMU Mustangs who have had a really nice season so far, after having so many seasons filled with all kinds of disappointments.
They come into this game with a 5-2 record with the only losses coming against Houston and TCU both games they were underdogs in.
For the Mustangs the strength is the offensive side of the ball. They are averaging 42 points and 489 points per game.
So far this season quarterback Ben Hicks has thrown for 1967 yards and 17 touchdowns. He is the key to this teams success.
To win this game the Mustangs need to try and run up the score. The Golden Hurricane can’t keep up in a shootout so that is the best chance for victory.
