Arkansas St over TULSA by 4

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - Page 10 1.800.playbook -

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!
