UCF Knights vs Tulsa Golden Hurricane 11/08/2019 – The Tulsa Golden Hurricane would love to end their five-game losing streak this Friday against the UCF Knights. Unfortunately, Vegas line NCAA football believes the Knights will be too much for the Hurricane to handle. A reason for this is because UFC has been playing exceptionally well as of late. They have won their last three games and are fast catching up to the division leaders. Tulsa has lost five straight but there is a silver lining in those loses. The Golden Hurricane has been playing well, meaning overturning oddsmakers is a possibility.

The Knights are on a roll, winning their last three games. And if oddsmakers are to be believed, they should get their fourth straight victory on Friday night. Leading the way will be QB Dillon Gabriel who had a great outing last time out. He had 21 completions on 30 attempts for 298 yards and three touchdowns. Other players worth watching include Tre Nixon and Bentavious Thompson. Nixon led all scorers with six catches for 123 yards the last outing. Thompson, on the other hand, had 65 yards and two touchdowns on seven carries. UFC has plenty of offensive options, hinting that it will be a long game for Tulsa.

The struggles continue for Tulsa and it appears that will continue this Friday against the Knights. They are coming off a stinging defeat at the hands of Memphis. Against UCF, they will need to work doubly hard on both fronts to snag a win. On offense, it all depends on Zach Smith. The Tulsa Golden Hurricane quarterback completed 17 of 33 passes for 270 yards and a touchdown last game. Tulsa does have a decent passing game, averaging 272.2 yards per outing. However, their defense needs to improve, especially against a gifted offensive team like UFC.
Players to watch Z. Smith QB 186 CMP 340 ATT 2,440 YDS 54.7 CMP% 7.2 AVG 58 LNG 12 TD 6 INT; S. Brooks RB 178 ATT 753 YDS 4.2 AVG 57 LNG; C. Taylor II RB 92 ATT 350 YDS 3.8 AVG 36 LNG; K. Stokes WR 47 REC 773 YDS 16.4 AVG 58 LNG; S. Crawford Jr. WR 40 REC 531 YDS 13.3 AVG 44 LNG
