Tulsa vs. Houston: How to watch, schedule, live stream info, game time, TV channel

Through 1 Quarter

The Houston Cougars were expected to take an ‘L’ in this one, but so far it isn’t playing out to script. They are in control with a 14 to nothing lead over the Tulsa Golden Hurricane. Houston has come by their advantage honestly, as they have outgained Tulsa 182 yards to 51.

The Cougars have been relying on QB Clayton Tune, who has passed for one TD and 148 yards on 12 attempts, and WR Jeremy Singleton, who was on the other end of that TD and has tacked on 47 yards receiving. Singleton’s performance is making up for a slower contest against the Navy Midshipmen last week.

Both Houston and Tulsa padded the win column in their previous outings. We’ll see if Houston can maintain their lead to polish off another win and cancel out Tulsa’s positive energy.

What to Know

The Tulsa Golden Hurricane are 1-4 against the Houston Cougars since October of 2015, but they’ll have a chance to close the gap a little bit Friday. The Golden Hurricane and Houston will face off in an American Athletic battle at 7:30 p.m. ET at Skelly Field at H.A. Chapman Stadium. These two teams seek to continue their momentum from their previous wins.

Last week, Tulsa turned the game against the Arkansas State Red Wolves into a track meet and took the gold after outgaining them 624 yards to 366. Tulsa beat Arkansas State 41-34. Tulsa’s RB Shamari Brooks looked sharp as he rushed for one TD and 155 yards on 22 carries. This was the first time Brooks has racked up 100+ rushing yards all year.

The Golden Hurricane’s defense was a presence as well, as it embarrassed the Red Wolves’ offensive line to sack QB James Blackman six times for a total loss of 28 yards. It was a group effort with six guys contributing.

Meanwhile, the Cougars bagged a 28-20 win over the Navy Midshipmen last week. Houston’s RB Ta’Zhawn Henry was one of the most active players for the team, punching in two rushing touchdowns.

Tulsa is the favorite in this one, with an expected 3.5-point margin of victory. But bettors beware: they are 0-2 against the spread when favored.

The Golden Hurricane are now 1-3 while Houston sits at a mirror-image 3-1. A couple stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Tulsa is stumbling into the game with the 216th most thrown interceptions in the nation, having thrown five on the season. Houston is completely their equal: they are 216th worst in the nation in thrown interceptions, having thrown five on the season. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
