Tulsa vs Temple Game Preview

Why Tulsa Will Win

Just score.

Tulsa has a whole lot of issues, but it has a high-powered passing offense and enough firepower to at least throw a few touchdowns on the board.

Would it be nice if this was the type of attack that scored 40ish without breathing hard? Of course, but that’s not necessary.

Temple is coming off giving up 70 to UCF. Tulsa is coming off giving up 53 to Navy. Something has to give, and it’ll be the Owl defense just a wee bit.

Tulsa can score a little bit. Temple will score more than it usually does, but it won’t be consistent enough in the second half.
