News: Tulsa offensive lineman Stetson Burnett tore his ACL in the win against UTEP.
Analysis: Tough blow for the Tulsa offensive line and this is a big injury before the Houston game this week. This should not knock down any value of the Tulsa skill position players however.
News: Curnelius Arnick had a career-best 19 tackles, including 12 solos and one TFL for -1 yards, as well as one pass breakup in Tulsa's 24-17 road victory over UCF, which led him to be named C-USA defensive player of the week.
Analysis: The Tulsa defense is playing very well and in a pinch, they are a solid start against Marshall this week.
News:Analysis: The Tulsa defense held Houston to just 25 points and 409 total yards in the 28-25 victory. With their ability to get return TDs as well, the Golden Hurricane D could be a sleeper play against UTEP next week.
News:Analysis: The Golden Hurricane allowed 415 yards and 27 points, but did force two fumbles. Damaris Johnson's kickoff return for a touchdown marked the second-straight week in which he scored on special teams. Still, the Tulsa D does not make for the best play against Houston's high-powered offense next week.
News:Analysis: Tulsa scored on a 59-yard punt return from the dynamic Damaris Johnson, while also getting a 66-yard INT return for a TD by Shawn Jackson, and a Safety by Curnelis Arnick off of a blocked field goal. A simply monstrous game for the Tulsa defense, which forced four turnovers in all. Don't expect the same scores against Rice next week, but the Golden Hurricane could still make for a sneaky play.
News:Analysis: The Golden Hurricane did intercept a pass, while also forcing a fumble by the Tulane Green Wave. Still, not exactly a stout defensive contest. The Tulsa defense is a questionable start at best in two weeks against Notre Dame.
News:Analysis: The Golden Hurricane defense allowed a meager 207 yards while forcing four turnovers against the overmatched Tigers. The Tulsa D could be in for more of a test against SMU next week though.
News:Analysis: The Green Wave defense notched one sack, one INT and one forced fumble for the contest, while holding the Bears to 319 yards of total offense. Tulsa could make for a decent play next week against Memphis.
News:Analysis: The Golden Hurricane allowed 722 yards of total offense. Yes, you read that correctly. They did have one sack and one INT, but that does not make up for the ridiculous amount of yardage yielded. However, they could make for a monster sleeper pick against Central Arkansas next week.
News:Analysis: Tulsa's D allowed 303 yards to the Falcons, but yielded just 20 points for the game. The Golden Hurricane also tallied five sacks for the game. However, they will have a tough task next against Oklahoma State.
News:Analysis: Allowing 51 points and 538 yards of total offense simply will not get it done. Though two sacks and an INT soften the blow a bit, Tulsa's defense remains one to avoid for fantasy purposes.
