FEARLESS PREDICTIONS: 2014 Week Three - Tulsa vs FAU
Hurricane winds are a blowin', although thankfully not in a traditional sense.
The Tulsa Golden Hurricane have departed former ranks within C-USA for "better pastures" within the American Athletic Conference (AAC).
But there is still some unfinished business to be had in the form of cling-on scheduling, enter the Owls.
Both teams took a beating last weekend at the hands of Top 5 foes, and are hungry to turn the corner quickly.
The Owls more so, since they have yet to win a content and have been outpaced in scoring 96-7 on the season thus far.
Tulsa escaped Tulane 38-31 in 2OT at home to open their 2014 slate, before being trounced by Oklahoma 52-7.
But who is the hungriest?
That's what it will likely come down to in a fairly matched game.
At 1-9 over the last 10 contents, September has not been kind to the Owls.
Although do like FAU as game film of "extremely probable" returnee at QB Jaquez Johnson will be limited for game prep Tulsa's way.
The addition of reconciling Schnellenberger's name to deserved status should also provide an added bonus in atmosphere.

What says you??
70-2…the Owls give up a safety on the first play of the game even though we had good starting field position on the 45 yard line, the ball was hiked over Quez's head. Fortunately, we scored 10 unanswered touchdowns. Although special teams struggled missing four PAT's. But Hankerson came in on the Wildcat twice for two point conversions to make up for the kicking deficiencies.
