Game Time: 3:30 pm
Venue: Warren McGuirk Alumni Stadium, Amherst, MA
Network: American Sports Network
The two teams are better than the records.
It’s going to be a work in progress at Tulane under new head coach Willie Fritz, but the running game is starting to rumble a little bit. It’s not Georgia Southern quite yet, but Dontrell Hilliard and company are holding their own – it’s starting to work.
It might have taken four overtimes to get by Louisiana-Lafayette last week, but the defense has been sound over the first four games stuffing Wake Forest and keeping from getting into a groove – yeah, giving up 287 yards to the Midshipmen offense isn’t bad.
UMass has kicked in the defense a bit better than the stats might indicate – it’s been better than expected with Florida, Boston College and Mississippi State on the schedule. The Minutemen are finally getting someone their own size in their house, and it’s going to show.
Can UMass muster ANY sort of an offense to match what Tulane will do on its few scoring drives? No.
Tulane will have to go on a few long marches, and it’ll have to come up with a few late stops, but it’s playing better overall. Expect an entertaining game.
