The Tulane Green Wave will head to Boca Raton to face the Florida Atlantic Owls in AAC play this weekend from FAU Stadium on ESPN+.

Tulane Green Wave Preview

Tulane improved to 9-1 after defeating Tulsa in New Orleans by two, 24-22. The Green Wave got a real scare from their longtime conference rivals, but after escaping they’ll look to pin win number ten this weekend in Florida. The Tulane offense is scoring 28.2 ppg, while passing for 227.6 ypg, rushing for 169.6 ypg, and converting 43.7% of their third downs.

Tulane Player Notes

Michael Pratt leads Tulane with 1,791 passing yards, with 16 touchdowns to four interceptions, after quarterbacking the Green Wave to another victory over the Golden Hurricane.

Freshman back Mahki Hughes surpassed the 1,000-yard mark with his sixth straight 100-yard performance in the win over Tulsa.

Senior wideout Lawrence Keys leads Tulane in receptions (33) and receiving yards (599). 

The Tulane defense has allowed 18.0 points per game.


Florida Atlantic Owls Preview

Florida Atlantic moved to 4-6 after losing to East Carolina at home, 22-7. The Owls squandered in the second half, and they now face an uphill battle if they’d like to earn a bowl bid.  The FAU offense is scoring 25.6 ppg, while passing for 225.6 ypg, rushing for 120.0 ypg, and converting 35.2% of their third downs.

Junior wideout LaJohntay Webster has caught five touchdown passes in the last here games, and he leads the AAC in receptions (93), while leading the Owls with 1,042 receiving yards.

The FAU defense is allowing 25.8 points per game.


Tulane vs Florida Atlantic Trends

TUL is 3-7 against the spread, with a 2-8 O/U record. 

FAU is 4-6 ATS, with a 5-5 over/under record.

Corey’s Free Pick

Tulane survived a scare last weekend, and it’s described how their season has gone in conference play, and after being dominant against the spread in 2022, their last four games have been decided by one score or next. While they have experienced trouble covering, FAU has noticeable issues of their own, particularly behind center. After struggling with ECU at home, I like leaning on a strong effort from Tulane on both sides of the ball, which should lead to a sizable victory. Roll with Tulane in this AAC matchup, and give the Under a look, as the Green Wave have a positive trend with the lower number this season.
