The UCF Knights will play the Tulane Green Wave in an AAC Game on Saturday afternoon at Yulman Stadium in New Orleans, Louisiana.

The UCF Knights are 7-2 (4-1) this season after they defeated Memphis by a score of 35-28 in their last game. UCF was out gained by a total of 433-427, but forced two turnovers and another two turnovers on downs. The UCF offense is averaging 35.7 points per game with 261.1 passing yards per game and 239.9 rushing yards per game. John Rhys Plumlee (questionable) has thrown for 1,883 yards, 11 touchdowns, and six interceptions, while also rushing for 532 yards and seven touhdowns for the Knights this season. RJ Harvey has rushed for 532 yards and four scores, while Ryan O’Keefe has caught 49 passes for 536 yards and four touchdowns for UCF.

Tulane out gained Tulsa by a total of 482-257 and went 8-15 on third down attempts in the win. The Tulane offense is averaging 32.9 points per game with 238.4 passing yards per game and 180.2 rushing yards per game. Michael Pratt has thrown for 1,843 yards, 14 touchdowns, and four interceptions, while also rushing for 251 yards five touchdowns for the Green Wave this season.

The Tulane defense is allowing 16.9 points per game and 307.3 yards per game.

UCF is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games and 7-18-1 ATS in their last 26 games on turf. The under is 6-2 in UCF’s last 8 games. Tulane is 10-1 ATS in their last 11 games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 November games. The under is 10-4 in Tulane’s last 14 games. The underdog is 5-1 ATS in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.

This should be a great game between two teams that are at the top of the AAC standings. Both teams have played well on both sides of the ball, but Tulane has been the slightly better defensive team. I am going to take the under in this game, as I think it is going to have a slow pace with a lot of running plays.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
