Gametime Weather: Sunny with temps in the upper-70’s

Golden Hurricane Hoping To Turn The Corner

The Golden Hurricane weren’t very good last season and finished the year with only four wins. They have missed out on postseason play for the last three seasons because they have nine total wins in three years and will try to make it to a bowl game this season.

Tulsa played well offensively last season, averaging 26.4 points per game. They averaged 281.3 passing yards and 138.3 rushing yards per game. With a lot of their starters from last season returning, they will be a better offensive unit this year.

Defensively, the Golden Hurricane wasn’t very good last season, giving up 31.3 points per game. With only four starters from last season returning, expect them to be worse defensively this season.

Cowboys Going For Eighth Consecutive Win Over Golden Hurricane

The Cowboys have owned the Golden Hurricane in recent years and have won the last seven meetings between the two teams. They will try to kick their season off with another win over the Golden Hurricane, which will give them their eighth in a row.

Oklahoma State played well offensively last season, averaging 32.6 points per game. They did a great job on the ground and through the air, averaging 229.6 rushing yards and 224.3 passing yards per game.

The Cowboys will be better offensively this season with most of their starters returning, so expect them to score a lot of points in this game.

Defensively, the Cowboys gave up 27 points per game last season, which was an improvement over the previous season. They gave up 21 points to the Golden Hurricane in their last meeting but should be much improved this season with the defense largely remaining intact.

Full-Game Side Bet

Insiders Status:


The Golden Hurricane didn’t play well defensively last season, giving up 31.3 points per game. They gave up 40 points to the Cowboys at home last season and will have a hard time slowing them down once again because 19 of the team’s 22 starters from last season are returning this season. The Cowboys also struggled on the defensive end, giving up 27 points per game. However, their defense improved from the previous season and will have nearly everyone back so expect them to be better than they were last season when they held the Golden Hurricane to 21 points.

Prediction: Oklahoma State Cowboys -21

Full-Game Total Pick

Insiders Status:


The Cowboys had an explosive offense last season, averaging 32.6 points per game.

The Golden Hurricane also played well offensively last season, averaging 26.4 points per game. They were held to 21 points in last season’s meeting and will likely score 20 points in this game, which will be enough to push the score over the total.
