Tulsa vs Tulane Game Preview
Why Tulsa Will Win
The Golden Hurricane showed against Cincinnati just how good they really are.
They might be in the midst of a losing season, but they’ve been able to battle hard in way too many close games. Yeah, winning the tight ones is part of the deal, but four of the six losses were by a touchdown or less.
Cincinnati is supposedly a College Football Playoff-level team, and the Tulsa running game ripped through it for close to 300 yards.

Tulsa, for all of its problems, will pull this off, beat Temple next week, and at the very least will go into the SMU game with a shot at getting bowl eligible. The running game will take over against the Golden Hurricane.
