The Sooners should be riding high into this one after last week’s victory snatched from the hands of defeat.
These two teams meet regular and it is the same old story of Oklahoma crushing on Tulsa. They have covered the last 5 in the series, none with a spread lower than 18 points.
The last time the spread got this big, the Hurricanes covered back in 2005.
Tulsa may be 2-0 but they are not going to all of a sudden challenge the pecking order in the AAC. Their wins are over Florida Atlantic and New Mexico, hardly the stuff legends are made of. They are 1-1 ATS.
You definitely have to consider the competition but it is encouraging that they put up a ton of yards in the victories. When Tulsa had the program really going they were among the most prolific offenses in the country.
Their only hope this week is to try and outscore the Sooners.
It would be great to get a victory but really the Hurricanes need this game to help get ready for their first league game against Houston next week.
QB Dane Evans is going to have to be very precise and not turn the ball over. He already has a couple of picks and the Tulsa defense is going to be no match for OU on a short field.
The Sooners may have won last week but they were supposed to go into Knoxville, throttle the Vols and show there is a third team worthy of playoff consideration in the B12.
That may wind up being the case but we haven’t seen it yet. They were lucky to get the win.
Through a couple of games the Sooners have not been able to get their ground game going. Samaje Perine is averaging 3.3 yards per carry ant the vaunted Akron defense was able to bottle him up in the opener.
This week they need to exert more dominance to show that they are capable of it. That especially applies to the running game as the Tulsa front is unlikely to put up much resistance.
This is the perfect tune up game before they dive into league play next week against West Virginia.
