Tulsa Needs To Put It All Together

Posted: Updated:

The two preseason favorites to win Conference USA's west and east divisions square off this Saturday.  The University of Tulsa heads to East Carolina to face the 6-2 Pirates.

But this match-up has lost a lot of it's luster with Tulsa's unexpected downward spiral.  TU has struggled to a 2-6 mark after winning the league a year ago.

The Golden Hurricane still believe they have a shot to win this game.  They say just have to find away to put it all together.

"We still believe if we can put together a cleaner game that we have the ability to win football games." said TU head football coach Bill Blankenship, "We certainly need to execute better and with that in mind we have to do a better job of taking care of the football and getting more turnovers.  The turnover margin continues to slide in the wrong direction."
 
The Golden Hurricane will face the Pirates for the first time since 2010.  Saturday's game gets underway in Greenville, NC at 2:50pm.
