The Murray State Racers have had more success against better opponents, and they’ve been head and shoulders the more trustworthy defensive team. The Tulsa Golden Hurricane find themselves in a lot of track meets, and their level of competition hasn’t been all that great, honestly. I’m just far more confident in Murray State, a team that’s shown great balance through 4 efforts. I’ll lay the bucket.
