1. College Football News Preview 2020: Tulane Green Wave Win Total Prediction, What Will Happen
At what point is 7-6 not great anymore?
Tulane suffered through four straight losing seasons and 14 in 15 seasons before 2018 – the lone winning season, by the way, was 7-6 in 2013 – before going 7-6 in each of the last two years.
7-6 is good considering the drought Tulane was in for so, so long, but is it possible to take things to a whole other level in an American Athletic Conference with so many good and improving teams?
It’s not like there were any true clunkers last season among the six defeats – four came against teams that won ten games or more, one was on the road to a good Temple squad, and one was to Auburn – but there’s not a lot of help from the schedule.
Set The Tulane Green Wave Regular Season Win Total At … 6
Even with the new schedule, Tulane will be shooting for six wins and go to a bowl for a third straight year – it would be the first time in the program’s history it would do that.
The slate, all of a sudden, isn’t all that horrible without Mississippi State and Northwestern to play.
Tulane should be able to find a way to get to six wins, but it’s going to be tricky. It’s a good enough team to come up with home wins somewhere against Navy, or Army, or Temple, or SMU, but none of those are layups.
Road games at Tulsa and East Carolina are hardly sure things, and going to Houston and UCF are all going to be issues.
The Green Wave are too good and too well-coached to not win its share of games. It’ll get to five wins, but it might need a home win over Memphis in the regular season finale to get to six.
