ECU snapped its five-game losing streak by demolishing UConn 41-3. Quarterback Philip Nelson was on point, throwing for 253 yards and two touchdowns while the defense clamped down on the Huskies rushing game, allowing just 89 yards on the ground.

What To Know About ECU

The Pirates finally got back in the win column by getting back to playing defense and having a balanced offense that keeps the opposition guessing. Granted, that came against an UConn team that has been struggling all season. ECU must be able to put some points on the board this game as Tulsa’s offense is clicking right now.

What to Know About Tulsa

If you score 59 points, it usually doesn’t matter how many points the defense lets up. That was the case as Flanders and company ran all over Memphis to stay in contention for the AAC West title. Flanders could have another big day in store, as the Pirates are 76th in the nation in rushing defense allowing 178 yards per game on the ground. Expect another explosive showing by the Golden Hurricane.

Advantages

Offense: Tulsa. No matter who you are playing, scoring five rushing touchdowns like Flanders did is impressive.

Defense: Tie. Both teams give up a lot of yards and points.

Special Teams: Tie. Neither field goal kicker is that reliable.

Coaching: Tulsa. Philip Montgomery has the Golden Hurricane bowl eligible and competing for the division title.

Intangibles: Tulsa. Keep winning and the division could be theirs.
