The Tulsa Golden Hurricane need a home victory here to get back to a .500 record. The Tulsa Golden Hurricane have lost four of their last six home games. Zach Smith is completing 63.5 percent of his passes for 664 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. Smith has one touchdown pass in four of his last eight games.

The Cowboys are 5-16 ATS in their last 21 games in September, 4-1 ATS vs. a team with a losing record and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Golden Hurricane are 18-7-1 ATS in their last 26 games following a ATS loss, 13-4 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games in September. The under is 16-5 in Golden Hurricane last 21 games overall. The under is 21-8-1 in Cowboys last 30 games overall.
The Wyoming Cowboys have split their last 10 games ATS as an underdog. The Tulsa Golden Hurricane have split their last 14 games ATS as a favorite. Wyoming has found ways to win all three games up to this point, but the lack of success through the air is going to catch up the Cowboys eventually. Tulsa held its own against Oklahoma State last week and playing two games against teams out of its league will only help this team improve as the season drags out. I expect the real Tulsa team to show up this week. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the Golden Hurricane at home.
