The Tulsa Golden Hurricane (1-3), who haven't won a game since their opener, will take on the excellent defense of the Temple Owls (3-1) on Saturday.
Last Saturday, Tulsa's defense couldn't stop Colorado State's offense as the Hurricanes were trounced 42-17 on the road. Colorado State had 298 passing yards and 234 rushing yards in that game, and Tulsa ended up turning the ball over three times.
Tulsa's biggest problem so far this season has been scoring as they have only been able to average 16.6 points per game through their first five games. Their best player this season has definitely been wide receiver Keevan Lucas, who has caught 44 passes for 540 yards and six touchdowns through his team's first four games.
Temple outscored Connecticut 29-7 in the second half of their game two weekends ago and cruised to a 36-10 road victory. Temple only had 272 total yards in that win, but their defensive unit was able to force three Connecticut turnovers and they scored two touchdowns in the game.
The Owls have been fantastic defensively this year, giving up just 12 points per game in four games. Defensive back Tavon Young has three interceptions for Temple this year and is third in the country in interception yards with 128. Quarterback P.J. Walker, has thrown for 805 yards this season with seven touchdown passes and three interceptions.
