Didn’t you used to be Houston?
Out of the national consciousness after getting blown out by SMU, and as losers of two fo the last four games, the Cougars are going through the motions now for a bowl appearance – unless there’s a minor miracle with Navy and Tulsa collapsing.
Fortunately for them, the run defense still works, allowing fewer than 100 yards in seven of the nine games. However, they gave up 306 yards to Navy, and 178 to SMU – and those were the two losses.
Did Navy show Tulane the way?
Tulane has rushed for more than 200 yards in the last three games and in four of the last five games. While the defense hasn’t been able to hold up its end of the bargain, the offense has done its job to start looking more and more like first year head coach Willie Fritz wants.
With no passing game whatsoever, Tulane’s about to have a hard time against the active Cougar defensive front that lives in opposing backfields. The Green Wave will get their yards on the ground, but they won’t be able to slow down Greg Ward Jr. and the Cougar attack as the game goes on.
