Close losses doom the Golden Hurricane one more time


Losing is tough enough but losing close games in a competitive league has been the story for the Tulsa Golden Hurricane this season. The frustration continued last Saturday. For the second straight week and the 4th time this season, Tulsa lost a decision in the waning minutes of the contest as SMU pulled out a […]

If the Dodgers win, it might help Tulsa


By the time you read this, the World Series will have been decided, but at the time of this writing, the series is tied 2-2. No matter which team wins, I won’t be disappointed. I’ve never been a big Houston Astros fan, but in the early 1990s, I was an associate scout for the Astros, […]

OU-Red Raider game might be an offensive explosion


From a statistical standpoint, Oklahoma and Texas Tech – two of the most prolific offenses in college football – may have another shootout in Norman Saturday night. The No. 10 Sooners host unranked Texas Tech at 7 p.m. OU surged past Kansas State 42-35 in Manhattan last Saturday while the Red Raiders lost to No. […]

OSU defense shines in Texas win; No. 22 UWV is next


Even with the best offense and best quarterback in America, the No. Oklahoma State Cowboys relied on great defensive play to squeak past unranked Texas, 13-10 last Saturday in Austin. Cowboy quarterback Mason Rudolph leads the nation in passing yardage (2,650) and OSU has the top passing offense (392 yards per game) and total offense […]

TU vs. SMU Friday Night in Dallas


It’s never easy to play Connecticut in football and it’s especially difficult when things just aren’t going your way.

Tulsa’s record dropped to 2-6 overall and 1-3 in the American Athletic […]

Tulsa comes alive in the second half to upset Houston

No. 9 OU defeats unranked Texas; KSU road trip is next


No. 9 Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley said everyone plays their best against the Sooners. That was the case in the Cotton Bowl last Saturday when the unranked Texas Longhorns (3-3, 2-1 in the Big 12) battled back from a deficit to take the lead late but still fell to the Sooners, 29-24, in the Red […]

OSU travels to Austin for a pivotal Big 12 showdown


After dispatching winless Baylor 59-16 in Stillwater Saturday, the No. 10 Oklahoma State Cowboys face a tough stretch of four games that will help determine a Big 12 champion. That road begins at 11 a.m. Saturday against the Texas Longhorns in Austin. Texas stands at 3-3 but still has hopes for a spot in the […]

OSU heavily favored over winless Bears


It would be easy for No. 15 Oklahoma State to overlook 0-5 Baylor. The Cowboys (4-1, 1-1 in the Big 12) and the Bears were idle last Saturday. Baylor has had a miserable season, losing five in a row to Liberty, UTSA, Duke, Oklahoma and Kansas State. The only truly competitive game was a narrow […]

OU’s hopes for the season are on the line against Texas


NORMAN – No. 12 Oklahoma (4-1, 1-1 in the Big 12) faces unranked Texas (3-2, 2-) in a critical matchup for the Sooners if they want to win the conference and have a shot at the playoff. The Sooners, heavy favorites at home, lost to Iowa State 31-38 Saturday while the Longhorns struggled to beat […]
