Tulsa Golden Hurricane head coach Philip Montgomery followed up a 2016 regular season by winning the Miami Beach Bowl. He’s feeling the pressure after posting a 2-10 SU record in 2017, 1-7 in Conference play with their lone win a 45-17 home victory over Houston.

The Tulsa offense is scoring 24.0 ppg with quarterback Luke Skipper throwing for 716 yards with four touchdowns and six interceptions. Running Back, Shamari Brooks has 375 of the 838 yards on the ground for a rushing attack that averages 209.5 ypg.

The Golden Hurricane defense has given up 115 points which rank 61st in the nation, and they’ve surrendered 1,434 total yards, 31st in the FBS. Defensive coordinator Bill Young knows he must have his unit ready against a high-powered Houston offense.

The defensive line must win the battle in the trenches if they’re to have success. There’s also a revenge factor after the Cougars were embarrassed in Tulsa.

However, they must cut down on penalties which have stalled drives; the unit has been flagged 23 times for 172 yards, 100th in the FBS.

The Houston defense is led by a sure-fire first-round NFL draft pick if he decided to forgo his final season in tackle Ed Oliver. Houston allows opponents 114.0 yards per game on the ground which ranks 29th in the nation. However, the 389.0 yards per contest by opponents is last in the NCAA Football landscape.

The Cougars have had this game circled since fall camp, and you can bet fans will get involved.

2018-19 NCAA Football Predictions, News, Notes and Odds: Tulsa Golden Hurricane Preview.

Written by College Football Expert Analyst Al Presto.

Charliessports.com produces it for Football Betting. College Football Picks are the best in the industry and will continue through the BCS Title game in January of 2019. A reverse of fortunes in 2017 from a team that won ten games the previous season has cause for concerns in Tulsa. The good news is Tulsa lost five games in the finals possessions which can be rectified with better conditioning and experience. Head Coach Philip Montgomery enters his fourth season in the Sooner State with his job on the line. It’s going to be two seasons since Canadian Football League quarterback Dane Evans graduated and Montgomery looking for his predecessor. Non-Conference road trips to face Texas and Arkansas will test their talent level: they also travel to West division favorites Navy, Houston, and Memphis.

Starting signal callers, Chad President and Luke Skipper threw for six touchdowns after Evans broke records in 2016. Skipper 1,141 has a live arm; he’s emerging as the starter with President turning into a situational player. Wide Receiver Justin Hobbs 830 yards returns as the primary target. As much as Montgomery like to put the ball in the air, their rushing attack ranked fourteenth nationally last season. Running Back D’Angelo Brewer 1,517 yards along with Shamari Brooks ten touchdowns put up an average of 247.2 yards on the ground. The Golden Hurricanes have the luxury of a veteran offensive line in 2018 anchored by Chandler Miller. Also, Willie Wright and Tyler Bowling can fire off of the football with authority. Tulsa must run to set up the pass, Skipper should emerge as a full-time starter, but Brewer and Brooks are proven commodities.

All three levels of Tulsa’s defense need improvement; they gave up 528.9 yards per game, 128th in the nation. Sixteen knee injuries in a single season are seemingly heard of, but the Golden Hurricane experienced that kind of devastation including Jordan Mitchell and Manny Bunch suffering torn ACL’s. Help is on the way as Montgomery hit the Junior College ranks to upgrade on defense. Linebackers Diamon Cannon and Cooper Edmiston return, and coaches expect big things from Robert Revels. Two losses at defensive end will force JUCO Players into immediate action on the defensive line. Akayleb Evans and Allie Green should improve after seeing plenty of work as freshmen in 2017. Tulas has nowhere to go, but up on this side of the ball, results will be examined. Bovada.Lv, list Tulsa at +1,200 to win the 2018 American Athletic Conference Football West Division Championship.
