Arkansas St over TULSA by 4
The Golden Hurrican sputtered early against Texas last week, trailing 21-0 at the half. But they showed enough muster to outscore the Shorthorns 21-7 before finally succumbing in a 28-21 final where +21 Tulsa easily made off with the cash. The Red Wolves let us down last week on this page and our late telephone service as well when they were silenced by Alabama, 57-7. To their credit, they managed 391 yards of offense against Alabama’s vaunted defense but could only muster 7 points for a game’s worth of work. Arkansas State moved from a small dog to a small favorite off the opening line here, a move we understand considering its 5-0 SU mark in regular seson games when coming off a loss the past two seasons. Yes, Tulsa looked like the Hurricane of old in the final 20 minutes against Texas last Saturday but they have a conference revenger up next with Temple, and have been untrustworthy 9-19-1 ATS at home the last half dozen seasons, includIng when arriving off a loss. Fool’s gold in Oklahoma!
