Storylines

Tulsa won 10 game in 2016 but find themselves in a rebuilding phase heading into the 2017 season. The biggest question marks for the Golden Hurricane are at quarterback and on the defensive line. Philip Montgomery is going into his third season as Tulsa’s head coach and has a proven track record of developing great talent at quarterback.

Oklahoma State is in the exact opposite position from Tulsa as they return the core of an offense that will be one of the most prolific in the country. Quarterback Mason Rudolph has the opportunity to work himself into a Top 10 NFL draft pick and the sky is literally the limit for this OSU team.
