Scouting Tulsa

Record: 1-0, 1-0 in AAC play; coming off a 38-31, double-overtime win over Tulane last Thursday.

Best player: Wide receiver Keyarris Garrett. The junior broke his leg in the second game last season and received a medical hardship. Even though he only caught five passes for 87 yards and no touchdowns — not even close to being the team’s leading receiver — in Thursday’s season opener, his presence on the field completely transforms the TU offense.

The case for Tulsa: Golden Hurricane quarterback Dane Evans played the game of his life last week, and the TU offense seems to be trending up after a poor 2013 season.

The case for Oklahoma: Because of all the Sooner fans in the Tulsa area and the state, this will be essentially another home game. Oklahoma’s talent far outweighs the Golden Hurricane’s, making an upset highly unlikely.
