Tulsa is the rare team that actually turned a few heads in their opener without winning. They were very competitive against Oklahoma State.
UCF looks to be in midseason form on offense so Tulsa’s defense better be up to the task.
If you can’t score the Knights will eat you up though. Tulsa offense’s need to show something to give the team a chance.
Tulsa Golden Hurricane
Tulsa has just one data point so far this season, a 16-7 loss to Oklahoma State. Their defense was really good in slowing down the Cowboys.
Needless to say 7 points is not going to cut it against UCF. QB Zach Smith has shown he can throw the ball in the past. He threw for more than 3000 yards last season.
Tulsa needs to find someone to run the ball with Shamari Brooks out for the season. He rushed for 1000 yards last sesaon.
The 16 points they held Oklahoma State too might be the Pokes lowest total of the season. Sure they got some injury help there but they looked the part too.
UCF is prolific and comes in waves so hopefully Tulsa has used the time prepare wisely.
The Knights started the season with back to back road game. That didn’t stop them from going 2-0 and averaging 50ppg.
UCF is also first in the nation in yards per game. Dillon Gabriel has been awesome but they are also running the ball for more than 200 yards a game.
The defense has been a little leaky, giving up 28 points last week to a not so great East Carolina team. They have athletes though.
From what we have seen I think UCF is probably the best team in the AAC this season. Their first home game is likely to add to that narrative.

Tulsa might have one of the best defenses in the conference and still give up 50 points to UCF in this one. UCF is just so good and moving the ball and converting.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: UCF -21
I don’t like giving up so many points but I just don’t see Tulsa scoring enough to keep this one close enough. Even with the backdoon open the Golden Hurricane still have to punch it through.
I am big on UCF. They have become one of those teams that just knows how to win big when they are supposed to. They don’t play a lot of clunkers.
