Why Tulsa Will Win
Start throwing, keep throwing, make Houston stop it.
The Cougar defense came up with a shocking performance in the 42-3 win over East Carolina last week, but for the most part the pass defense is getting thrown on at will.
Between the nine touchdown passes allowed against SMU, to the 486 yards given up in the win over Temple, to team after team hitting the midrange passes, the D will give up 300 passing yards to anyone who can throw.
Tulsa hasn't always been sharp, but it will hit enough big plays to keep pushing the Cougar secondary.

Why Houston Will Win
Start running, keep running, make Tulsa stop it.
The Golden Hurricane defense gives up yards in chunks, but it hasn't been awful against the more mediocre offenses. Houston's offense can do just about anything.
It might not be consistent, but it ripped off huge runs in the SMU and Temple games and should be using for five yards per carry in this. That, and the passing game that's connecting on close to 70% of its passes should work, too.

What's Going To Happen
Both teams will make this a show of fireworks.
Tulsa has just enough firepower to be in the game deep into the second half, but Houston's offense will take over late. The balance will will be enough to own the final ten minutes.
