Tulsa’s last win against Oklahoma State came back in 1998. Their last win in Stillwater came all the way back in 1951. This has historically been a very one-sided series, and the Cowboys have won 9 of the last 10 matchups. The average margin of victory for Oklahoma State in those 9 wins was 23.4 points. In addition, Oklahoma State has covered the spread in 4 of the last 5 meetings. In last year’s matchup, the Golden Hurricane gave the Cowboys all they could handle. Oklahoma State won 16-7, but they failed to cover the 24-point spread. Things might be different this time around.
Oklahoma State will still struggle and sputter, Tulsa will still struggle and sputter, and this will look a whole lot like last year’s 16-7 Cowboy win throughout the first half.
But the Cowboy D will be come up with two takeaways, the O will start to get the ground game working, and it’ll open up late in the third.
