The Tulane Green Wave will travel to the Bounce House to take on the UCF Knights this Saturday afternoon in College Football action.

The Tulane Green Wave lost their 6th straight game and dropped to 1-7 on the season after being defeated by the 2nd ranked Cincinnati Bearcats, 31-12, this past Saturday. Tulane gave Cincinnati all they could handle early in this game and went into halftime trailing by just a 14-12 margin, however, the Green Wave struggled on both ends of the field in the 2nd half and could not fight back after a 5-yard TD reception by Josh Whyle gave the Bearcats a 21-12 lead with 3:12 left in the 3rd quarter. Tulane was outgained by Cincinnati by a 351-280 margin and lost the turnover battle by a 4-1 margin in the loss. Leading the way for the Green Wave was RB Tyjae Spears who had 106 rushing yards & 1 TD on 19 carries.

On the season, Tulane is averaging 29.6 ppg on 387.5 total yards per game (234.8 passing yds/g; 152.8 rushing yds/g). Offensively, Tulane has been led by QB Michael Pratt who has completed 59.0% of his passes for 1598 yards, 16 TD, & 5 INT while also rushing for 4 TD. Pratt missed last week’s game due to a concussion and was replaced by Kai Horton who completed 7 of 16 passes for 79 yards & 2 INT. Pratt has practiced this week, however, has yet to be officially cleared for action. Leading the way for the Green Wave backfield has been the duo of Cameron Carroll (81 att, 416 yards, 2 TD) & Tyjae Spears (57 att, 307 yards, 4 TD). The top receiving threats for the Green Wave have been Tyrick James (24 rec, 358 yards, 3 TD), Duece Watts (16 rec, 253 yards, 2 TD), Jaetavian Toles (15 rec, 229 yards, 2 TD), & Shae Wyatt (17 rec, 183 yards, 3 TD).

Defensively, Tulane is allowing their opponents to average 40.9 ppg on 476.0 total yards per game (291.0 passing yds/g; 185.0 rushing yds/g).

The UCF Knights won their 2nd straight game and improved to 5-3 on the season after defeating the Temple Owls, 49-7, this past Saturday. UCF was outstanding offensively against Temple and had no trouble securing the victory after a 22-yard TD reception by Alec Holler gave the Knights a 28-0 lead early in the 3rd quarter. UCF outgained Temple by a 428-297 margin and forced 3 turnovers in the victory. Leading the way for the Knights was QB Mikey Keene who has completed 15 of 21 passes for 229 yards, 5 TD, & 1 INT.

On the season, UCF is averaging 34.8 ppg on 420.5 total yards per game (215.6 passing yds/g; 204.9 rushing yds/g). Offensively, UCF has been led by QB Mikey Keene who has completed 63.0% of his passes for 86 yards, 10 TD, & 6 INT. The top receiving threats for the Knights have been Ryan O’Keefe (47 rec, 488 yards, 4 TD), Brandon Johnson (27 rec, 317 yards, 8 TD), Jaylon Robinson (12 rec, 234 yards, 2 TD), & Alec Holler (13 rec, 157 yards, 3 TD). Leading the way for the Knights backfield has been the RB duo of Isaiah Bowser (110 att, 494 yards, 7 TD) & Johnny Richardson (66 att, 406 yards, 2 TD).

Defensively, UCF is allowing their opponents to an average of 25.9 ppg on 361.8 total yards per game (203.4 passing yds/g; 158.4 rushing yds/g).

The Green Wave are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games as a road underdog and just 1-5 ATS in their last 6 road games. The Knights are 40-18 ATS in their last 58 games after allowing less than 20 points in their previous game, however, are just 5-12 ATS in their last 17 games overall.

Tulane certainly has some talent on the offensive end, however, the defense has been in shambles this season as the Green Wave come into this game ranked just 127th in scoring defense and have really struggled on the road, allowing opponents to average 52.0 ppg. UCF has looked solid over their last two weeks on both ends of the field and as I think the Knights will be able to put up 40+ against the Green Wave in this one, I think their defense does enough to help UCF to cover this spread. Good Luck!
