The Line: Tulane Green Wave -- Over/Under:
The Central Florida Knights travel to play the Tulane Green Wave in an American Athletic Conference game.
The Tulane Green Wave are 1-2 this season with their only win coming against Maine. The Tulane offense is averaging 18.3 points per game this season with 338.6 yards per game. The Tulane quarterback is Tanner Lee who has thrown for 688 yards with 3 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. The Tulane rushing attack is led by Dontrell Hilliard who has 155 yards and 2 touchdowns. Lazedrick Thompson also runs the ball for Tulane with 132 yards and 1 touchdown. Devon Breaux leads the Tulane receivers with 179 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Tulane defense has given up 36.3 points per game with 465.7 yards per game. The Tulane defense has 1 sack, 3 fumble recoveries, and 2 interceptions. Tulane has gotten blown out by the two power five conference opponents they have faced, so it will be interesting to see how they matchup with UCF.
The Central Florida Knights are 0-4 this season and are coming off of a loss to South Carolina. The UCF offense is averaging just 12.5 points per game with 243.7 yards per game. The UCF offense has been using multiple quarterbacks due to an injury to starter Justin Holman, who has 249 yards and 2 touchdowns this year. The other two quarterbacks that UCF uses are Bo Schneider who has 298 yards, 1 touchdown, and 4 interceptions and Tyler Harris who has 131 yards, 1 touchdown, and 2 interceptions. It isn’t clear who will start this week for UCF at quarterback but all three options are not great. The leading rusher for UCF is Taj McGowan who has 119 yards rushing. The leading receiver for UCF is Tre’Quan Smith who has 233 yards and 2 touchdowns on the year. The UCF defense has given up 23.3 points per game with 288.1 yards per game. The UCF defense has 3 sacks and 3 fumbles recovered. UCF will look to get in the win column for the first time this year but will have their hands full with Tulane.
UCF is 4-0 ATS in their last four conference games. UCF is 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 3-0-1 in Central Florida’s last 4 games. Tulane is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games. Tulane is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. UCF is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 gams against Tulane.
This game will be interesting to see if Tulane can put together another good game like they played against Maine, or if they will continue to struggle. On the other hand, UCF is trying to get their first win of the season. This game is a tossup so I am going to take Tulane because they are at home.
