Houston vs. Tulsa prediction roundtable with the Campus Insiders staff. Breaking down what will happen in the game between the Cougars and Golden Hurricane.


Jeff Bartl

I was really high on Houston and hoped it would be the first Group of Five team to crash the College Football Playoff. Losing to Navy put an end to that, but it didn’t stop the Tom Herman-is-leaving rumors. He and Greg Ward Jr. move past that little hiccup, crush Tulsa and continue toward the Cougars’ showdown with Louisville in a few weeks still hoping to make a New Year’s Six bowl.

Jonathan Bass

I definitely whiffed on last week’s prediction, saying that Houston wouldn’t face a challenge until the Louisville game. Alas.

This is actually a sneaky good game. How interesting would it be if the bottom completely fell out of Houston’s season, the Cougars were added to the Big 12 at season’s end, Tom Herman stayed with the program and earned a $3 million raise (despite a cool finish), panicky Texas held on to Charlie Strong and even more panicky LSU kept Cookie Monster Orgeron in charge? That’d be a wild ending to the season.

As for this game, yeah, it’s tough to see Houston losing a second consecutive game, especially when playing at home.

Robert Judin

Greg Ward Jr … that’s it. That’s all that matters. If you, for one second, think he’s going to let the Cougars lose two games in a row, I’ll wait while you sober up. That’s not happening. Tulsa isn’t going to stop him. Ward will let the ball fly, and will account for four touchdowns in what will end up being an easy win for Houston.

Dave Miller

The Cougars are looking to bounce back after last week’s loss to Navy and keep their New Year’s Six bowl hopes alive. Quarterback Greg Ward Jr. and this prolific offense will be facing a solid Golden Hurricane defense that has returned two interceptions for touchdowns. Defensively, Tom Herman’s squad will have to contain D’Angelo Brewer, who leads the AAC in rushing at 143.2 yards per game. We’ll see a lot of points in this one, but the Cougars will start fast and ultimately overwhelm the Golden Hurricane.

Brian Stultz

Well, well, well … look who it is. It’s the big, bad Houston Cougars who thought they belonged with the big boys but got beat up by Navy. Maybe Tom Herman isn’t all that great (he probably is), but those type of losses can’t happen when you are trying to crash the College Football Playoff. Now, all Houston has to play for is a decent bowl game and a ranking at the end of the season. Whoopee! Houston beats Tulsa while only half the people that would have watched had they been undefeated tune in.
