Tulsa Golden Hurricanes

The Golden Hurricanes delivered a disappointing 3-9 record last season that also included a 2-6 run in the American conference play. This was Philip Montgomery’s 4th season as head coach of Tulsa. Although his first two seasons weren’t all that bad, Montgomery has won all of 5 games in the last 2 seasons. Nevertheless, the program has decided to give him another crack as he’s staying on for head coach in 2019 once again. Albeit, Joseph Gillespie has been brought in as first year head coach. If this duo isn’t able to deliver some better results this season, they’ll definitely be on the hot seat.

Players to Watch: Seth Boomer (1,378 passing yards, 9 TD, 4 INT), Shamari Brooks (967 rushing yards, 7 TD, 4.2 AVG), and Keylon Stokes (575 receiving yards, 2 TD, 41 REC).

Michigan State Spartans

The Spartans managed to turn in a 7-6 record last season that also included a 5-4 record in Big Ten play. All in all this was undoubtedly a step down from the 10-3 record the team delivered previously. Notwithstanding, there’s still plenty of hype surrounding the Spartans as they head into 2019’s action considering they’re nationally ranked. Mark Dantonio will return once again marking his 13th season with the program. He will be joined however by first year offensive coordinator Brad Salem.

Players to Watch: Brian Lewerke (2,040 passing yards, 8 TD, 11 INT), Connor Heyward (529 rushing yards, 5 TD, 4.5 AVG), and Cody White (555 receiving yards, 2 TD, 42 REC).
