12:03 P.M. EST: Sean McDonough and Chris Spielman are in the booth today with Todd McShay on the sideline.
11:55 A.M. EST: Less than ten minutes until kickoff in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on ABC.
11:43 A.M. EST: Tulsa's last won against Oklahoma in 1996 by the score of 31-24.
11:40 A.M. EST: Tulsa is seeking its first 2-0 start since 2009.
11:36 A.M. EST: Tulsa's helmets are currently putting the gold in Golden Hurricane.
11:33 A.M. EST: The Sooners are out on the field warming up in their regular road uniforms. It would not be surprising to see one of their new alternate unifroms in against Tennessee next week.
11:26 A.M. EST: Good morning everyone, we are just 34 minutes away from kickoff between the Oklahoma Sooners and the Tulsa Golden Hurricane
11:16 P.M. EST: The Sooners should win this one rather handily. Tulsa might be able to move the ball some but it will not be enough. The Golden Hurricane will have to be near perfect, and hope OU stumbles for them to have a chance in this one.
11:15 P.M. EST: OU just needs to come out and take care of business. There are plenty of examples where they have not been focused, and they lost to teams they should have beaten handily (Texas 2013). The Sooners have to avoid looking ahead to their matchup against Tennessee next week.
11:14P.M. EST: The defense has plenty of experience on this year's team with nine starters back. Tulsa gave up 516 yards against Tulane last week. The weakness for them is obviously stopping the run. Tulane exploited that weaknees last week, and OU could do it this week. The bright spot was the pass defense of Tulsa. They held Tulane to under 250 yards through the air. If the defense is on the field for a long time, it does not bode well for their chances.
11:13 P.M. EST: Lucas is not the only receiver OU has to look out for. Two other guys caught at least five balls and had over 80 yards receiving. Those two are Kayarris Garrett and Joshua Atkinson.
11:12 P.M. EST: For the defense the secondary as a group will be worth looking. This is a game where they can show that the front seven is not covering upo for mistakes. The secondary will have to withstand the onslaught of passing from the Golden Hurricane. Nobody was under pressure from the Bulldogs passing attack in week one. Evans threw 53 times last week, so the secondary will at least be tested this time around.
11:11 P.M. EST: With as much as Tulsa passes the front seven will be pinning their ears back with all the opportunities to get after the quarterback so many times.
11:10 P.M. EST: Quarterback Dane Evans and receiver Keevan Lucas are a dangerous combination. Evans threw for 438 yards on 53 attempts and four touchdowns in week one with 233 of those yards going to Lucas. The four touchdowns were the same amount he had last season on 195 throws. Evans Those numbers mean that Tulsa loves to pass which puts pressure on the unproven secondary. Evans will have to cut back on the tunovers after two inteceptions last week. The last thing Tulsa needs is to be giving away possessions.
11:09 P.M. EST: Trevor Knight needs to show more improvement in this game. He played well against Lousiana Tech but not enough cange the doubters' minds about hime. There were occasions where his passes looked like early 2013 all over again. He also has to find more targets to throw to and work on his rhythm with reecivers not named Sterling Shephard. Two other receivers combined for three receptions. Keith Ford proved he could catch the ball out of the backfield but that was about it. One thing the Sooners are missing is anothey dynamic threat like Shephard.
11:08 P.M. EST: There are multiple players to look for in this one for the Sooners. The three headed monster at running back all played well last week but could not muster 200 yards on the ground. Tulsa gave up 250 plus yards last week against Tulane, so they should have good success in this one.
11:07 P.M. EST: Oklahoma is heavily favored in this game and rightfully so. The Sooners have too much talent on the field for Tulsa to compete with. It would not be surprising for OU to come out and run the football just like last week. Once they get a lead then expect Trevor Knight to start getting more dangerous and throwing the ball down field.
11:06 P.M. EST: Enough about records, let's talk about the matchups on the field.
11:05 P.M. EST: Tulsa, while beginning their first year in the American Athletic Conference, is also looking to rebuild after a disappointing 3-9 campaign in 2013. The team did get a thrilling opening week win against the Green Wave of Tulane.
11:04 P.M. EST: Oklahoma are looking for their sixth straight win going back to 2013. The season was highlighted by wins against Oklahoma State and Alabama in the Sugar Bowl. The Sooners continued that streak against Louisiana Tech last Saturday.
11:03 P.M. EST: Surprisingly these two teams have only played 26 times. The first game played occurred one hundred years ago in 1914. The Sooners lead the series with 18-7-1 record.
11:02 P.M. EST: Oklahoma and Tulsa will help start the day of college with a 12:00 p.m. est start. Oklahoma has dominated Tulsa in the Bob Stoops era. OU is a perfect 7-0 against their state rival with none of the games being all that close. The closest came in 2005 when the Sooners defeated Tulsa 31-15.
11:01 P.M. EST: Welcome to VAVEL USA's coverage of the fourth ranked Oklahoma Sooners against the Tulsa Golden Hurricane. This marks the first time OU has been to Tulsa since 2007.
