All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Memphis vs Tulane Game Preview


Why Tulane Will Win

It’s been a lost season, but a win over Memphis to play the role of spoiler will have to do for something positive.

A two-game winning streak to close things out wouldn’t hurt after rocking USF 45-14.

It’s been a rough run, but there have been a whole slew of positives with a good pass rush, a whole slew of decent battles, and now it’s time to turn it all loose against a very, very shaky Tiger team.

Memphis has lost three of its last four, the running game is missing, and the offense as a whole has only hit 350 yards once in the last four games. Tulane has to control the tempo and the clock with its own ground game, and …

College Football Expert Picks, CFN Week 13

Why Memphis Will Win

Tulane just can’t score.

Oh sure, it ripped up a bad USF team with 45 points, but before that it hadn’t scored more than 13 points in a game for three straight losses, and it hadn’t hit the 30 mark since Week 2 of the season.

The Memphis offense might not be able to run all that well, but this is the chance to get it all going. Tulane can get behind the line, but it also gets gashed in chunks if a team can commit to the ground attack.

Memphis far better home run hitting capabilities.

NFL Expert Picks, CFN Week 12

What’s Going To Happen

Memphis will finally get that win needed to go bowling.

It’s going to be a fight, and it’s not going to be able to breathe easily until the final drive and the final stop, but it’ll get the win with the defense holding up through the second half after struggling early on.

Tulane will bring the production, but it won’t be sustainable.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

USF vs Tulane Game Preview


Why USF Will Win

The team is playing better.

It might be 1-4 over the last five games, but the four losses – including against Cincinnati and Houston – were were good battles. The passing game picked up over the last few weeks, the running game has had its moments, and the there are signs of life in a building year for 2022.

Tulane’s offensive line isn’t doing much of anything in pass protection, and on the flip side, USF’s line is doing a decent job of keeping everyone in the backfield clean. The Bull front five doesn’t allow a ton of sacks or tackles for loss, and again, it’s decent enough to generate a push for the ground game.

College Football Expert Picks, CFN Week 12

Why Tulane Will Win

It’s a brutally painful year for the Green Wave – they have yet to beat an FBS team – but the defense stepped up in losses to UCF and Tulsa, and the team is still putting up a good battle.

The offensive line is having problems, but USF doesn’t generate any semblance of a steady pass rush. As long as Michael Pratt can get a little time to work, there’s a wee bit of passing game that was there before dealing with Cincinnati, UCF, and Tulsa over the last three weeks.

USF might be playing better overall, but it’s not moving the chains consistently enough and the secondary can get torched – it gave up close to 700 yards through the air over the last two weeks.

NFL Expert Picks: CFN Week 11

What’s Going To Happen

Tulane’s offense isn’t working – 13 points or fewer in the last three games – and USF’s defense is having problems with 99 points allowed in the last two.

The offense should be able to perk up for the Green Wave, but USF is playing better overall.

The Bulls are going to look a whole lot stronger now that they’re not playing Houston and Cincinnati.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Tulsa vs Tulane Game Preview


Why Tulsa Will Win

The Golden Hurricane showed against Cincinnati just how good they really are.

They might be in the midst of a losing season, but they’ve been able to battle hard in way too many close games. Yeah, winning the tight ones is part of the deal, but four of the six losses were by a touchdown or less.

Cincinnati is supposedly a College Football Playoff-level team, and the Tulsa running game ripped through it for close to 300 yards.

The combination of Shamari Brooks and Anthony Watkins was fantastic against the Bearcats, QB Davis Brin got the team into a position to potentially pull off the shocker, and the O is there to bother a leaky Tulane defense that …

College Football Expert Picks, CFN Week 11

Why Tulane Will Win

The D stepped it up over the last few weeks.

A major problem over the first half of the season – Ole Miss, East Carolina, and SMU combined for close to 2,000 yards of offense – the Green Wave D was solid against the run against Cincinnati and UCF, keeping both games close. UC pulled away late, but that was a fight in a 31-12 loss.

The offense might be struggling, but that’s partly because QB Michael Pratt has been hurting – he missed the Cincinnati game and was just okay against UCF. As long as the offense can be just a wee bit balanced, and if it can avoid giving the ball away …

NFL Expert Picks: CFN Week 10

What’s Going To Happen

Turnovers are a major problem for both teams.

Tulane has turned it over ten times in the last five games and Tulane killed itself with four giveaways against Cincinnati. They’ll both make mistakes, they’re both having a rough time getting their respective seasons going, and …

Tulsa, for all of its problems, will pull this off, beat Temple next week, and at the very least will go into the SMU game with a shot at getting bowl eligible. The running game will take over against the Golden Hurricane.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Tulane vs UCF Game Preview


Why Tulane Will Win

Is Michael Pratt back?

The starting quarterback practiced this week after being out for the Cincinnati game with a concussion, but he’s still questionable.

The running game was able to pick up the slack a little bit last week, and the defense was able to keep the team in the game until late. Now it all has to work together against a UCF team that’s starting to bounce back a bit.

The Knights don’t have the sure-thing explosion to end this with a huge start. The downfield passing game isn’t as strong, the consistency isn’t there, and …

College Football Expert Picks, CFN Week 10

Why UCF Will Win

Tulane turns the ball over a whole lot.

It gave it up four times against Cincinnati, it has four games this season with four or more giveaways, and UCF might just need a few to be comfortable.

No, Mikey Keene might not be Dillon Gabriel quite yet, but he’s getting better and better with more work. He was sharp against Temple with five touchdown passes, his most accurate day of the season, and he got help from a defense that did its part with a second straight terrific performance after holding Memphis to seven points.

NFL Expert Picks, CFN Week 9

What’s Going To Happen

It’s just not Tulane’s year.

UCF doesn’t have to be spectacular in this.

It can rely on an improving defense that didn’t allow 300 yards in either of the last two games, the decent ground game should be more than serviceable, and there will be chances to come up with enough takeaways to make this comfortable.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Cincinnati vs Tulane Game Preview


Why Cincinnati Will Win

The Bearcats got past the knuckleball, and now they’re getting a team that also has a different sort of offense – and it’s really, really struggling.

Navy wasn’t quite the easy out it should’ve been – it required a ton of work late to get out with a 27-20 victory over a bad team – but this week the Cincinnati offense should be able to take control right away and get up big.

Tulane allows over 42 points per game, giving up 40 or more in four of the last five. The run defense is spotty, the pass defense is worse, and there’s a big problem overall with turnovers and takeaways.

Navy might not be all that great, but it takes teams out of their style and games. Cincinnati wasn’t able to run well last week, but it’s about to get back on track with a massive day of well over 200 yards – the Green Wave D doesn’t get off the field.

College Football Expert Picks, CFN Week 9

Why Tulane Will Win

The passing game isn’t all that bad, but it just needs the defense to hold up enough to matter.

This week, the running game has to take over – more on that in a moment – needing Cameron Carroll and Tyjae Spears to use their different styles to keep working inside and out and slow the game down a bit. Cincinnati hasn’t given up 200 yards on the ground, but it allowed two touchdown runs in each of the last two games.

Tulane isn’t big at controlling the clock, but Cincinnati doesn’t care a whole lot about the time of possession battle.

This is a creative Green Wave coaching staff that’s going to have to pull out all the stops and keep the Bearcat O on the sidelines because …

College Football Schedule, Predictions, Game Previews, Week 9

What’s Going To Happen

The Tulane quarterbacks are hurt. Michael Pratt is in the concussion protocol, Justin Ibiza is trying to come back from a shoulder injury, and this isn’t the defense to deal with when you want to test things out.

Is this when Cincinnati QB Desmond Ridder gets better? He’s been very good, not amazing.

That’s all about to change.

The Bearcat running game will be great, Ridder will be terrific, and Cincinnati will get past an early Tulane score to go on a huge run to take the drama away fast.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

SMU vs Tulane Game Preview


Why Tulane Will Win

So why is everything going so wrong?

There’s talent on Tulane, it was able to push Oklahoma early on, and there hasn’t been a whole lot of luck or fortunate breaks.

What’s going so wrong? Five tough games – at Oklahoma, at Ole Miss, UAB, at East Carolina, Houston. The Green Wave should’ve been able to hang with ECU a bit better and should’ve beaten Houston, but to be very, very, very fair, the program had hurricane issues to deal with over the first part of the season.

There’s enough of an offense to keep up against SMU.

The Tulane pass rush has the talent and pop to bother Tanner Mordecai and the SMU passing game that gets the ball out of his hands in a hurry, and the Green Wave passing attack will hit at least 200 yards against an SMU secondary that had issues with just about everyone who could throw.

Week 8 CFN College Football Expert Picks

Why SMU Will Win

Mordecai has been just that good.

The former Oklahoma quarterback had a few interception issues – he threw three against TCU and two against North Texas – but he’s also hitting 71% of his passes and two or more touchdown passes in every game.

No, Tulane isn’t getting a whole lot of luck, but it’s not creating its own positivity, either. It’s getting destroyed in turnover margin – giving it away three times or more in three of the six games and being a -7 overall.

And yeah, playing Oklahoma and Ole Miss will skew the stats, but East Carolina went off for 52 points – helped by a ton of takeaways. The Tulane D has allowed 40 points or more in four of the six games, and …

Week 8 College Football Schedule, Predictions, Game Previews

What’s Going To Happen

SMU will keep it going.

Tulane doesn’t run a triple-option like Navy does, but there are plenty of the same principles, and SMU was able to hold down the ground game. It’ll keep the Green Wave running attack from going off, but it’s not going to be easy.

Expect a whole lot of points, over 600 passing yards between the two attacks, and watch out for a whole lot of fun.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Houston vs Tulane Game Preview


Why Houston Will Win

The Tulane defense is having a few issues.

To be very, very fair, having Ole Miss, Oklahoma, East Carolina, UAB on the slate doesn’t help, but this is a veteran group that’s supposed to be better than allowing 482 yards and 40 points per game.

Houston has hardly been perfect, but the defense has been stunningly solid overall after the season-opening loss to Texas Tech.

The Cougars are great at getting off the field on third downs, the run D held up just fine against Navy and Tulsa, and there’s a whole lot pressure in the backfield.

However …

Week 6 CFN College Football Expert Picks

Why Tulane Will Win

Tulane’s offensive line hasn’t been bad.

It’s been good in pass protection and the running game hasn’t been bad when the team actually uses it.

At home, this is one of those best-someone-your-own-size moments. The Green Wave need to cut down on the turnovers, but there’s a passing game to push the Cougar secondary that hasn’t been tested all that much.

With a good punting game – field position should matter – and with the defense getting a wee bit of a break compared to most of the season so far, this is where the season momentum might turn if the Green Wave D can just come up with a few positive stops early.

Week 6 College Football Schedule, Predictions, Game Previews

What’s Going To Happen

The fantastic 2019 Tulane win broke the Cougars.

It was head coach Dana Holgorsen’s first year at Houston and there wasn’t a whole lot of luck happening early with two losses in the first three games. A crazy finish led to the build-for-2020-plan which for a whole slew of reasons didn’t work.

This isn’t exactly a full circle moment – the Cougars won the 2020 season opener over Tulane 49-31 – but it sort of is. This is when the program is supposed to be kicking it in under Holgorsen, but it’s about to get Tulane’s best shot.

The Green Wave will be creative as the offense gets going early, but it won’t be enough. Houston is playing too well defensively and QB Clayton Tune has been too accurate to lose this.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Tulane vs East Carolina Game Preview


Why Tulane Will Win

It’s a make or break game and moment for Tulane, and it should play like it.

It wasn’t bad in a 28-21 loss to UAB, and it suffered from having Oklahoma and Ole Miss on the schedule, but get ready for a team that comes out with a sense of urgency.

The offense needs to be more explosive, but the passing attack has been okay. The pass D hasn’t been great, the line gets into the backfield and the takeaways are there.

East Carolina’s offensive line isn’t anything great, and the defense is giving up 500 yards a game. This is the week when Tulane has to go from okay to great, especially through the air against a leaky secondary.

However …

Week 5 CFN College Football Expert Picks

Why East Carolina Will Win

The Pirates might have found their groove – at least for what they do.

They’re never going to have a brick wall of a defense, but it takes the ball away. The three turnovers forced against South Carolina kept the game alive, and they all but won the game against Marshall.

Tulane has a turnover problem with ten spread out over the first four games – the four against UAB were killer. Make this Green Wave offense press, and it’ll make mistakes.

Week 5 College Football Schedule, Predictions, Game Previews

What’s Going To Happen

Which team will finally show what it really is this season?

Tulane should be able to run the ball as much as it wants to and get back to the style of play it likes, but East Carolina should be able to take over with its own offense that seems ready to bust out.

Both teams have similar issues, but Tulane has a bit more of a defense. This week the ground game takes over in a back-and-forth blast that should come down to the final drive.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

UAB vs Tulane Game Preview


Why UAB Will Win

Can UAB translate the performances against the mediocre into a big game against a good team?

The Georgia game doesn’t count – that’s a whole other level.

The Blazers destroyed Jacksonville State – to be fair, the Gamecocks beat Florida State – and North Texas, and now it gets a battle against a Tulane team that has a good offense but has to stop getting hit with so many penalties and has to prove it can deal with a downfield passing game.

UAB is bombing away, averaging over 19 yards per throw all while doing a great job of holding on to the ball and controlling the clock. The efficient passing game combined with Tulane’s mistakes – there are turnover issues, too – might be enough to pull this off.

Week 4 College Football Expert Picks

Why Tulane Will Win

Tulane is finally back at home. Meanwhile, in a weird twist, it has played more games in Birmingham than the University of Alabama-Birmingham.

Thanks to Hurricane Ida, the Green Wave played their first three games away from home, and two of them were against Oklahoma and Ole Miss. Meanwhile, UAB started out the season with its first game played an hour down the road in Montgomery, and then went on the road for its next two games.

Its first home game isn’t until October against Liberty.

On the field, UAB has a strange way of not being able to convert on third downs. That didn’t matter against Jacksonville State or North Texas, but being 1-of-11 against Georgia ended that in a hurry.

Tulane has the offensive balance to keep up, helped by UAB’s inability to do too much in the backfield. Throw in the Blazers’ problem with turnovers, and …

Week 4 College Football Schedule, Predictions, Game Previews

What’s Going To Happen

Tulane gets the home win with the offensive parts working and the defense getting a breather after the Ole Miss problems.

UAB has enough talent to pull this off – and it’s probably going to win the Conference USA title – but the Green Wave will bring way too much pressure to let the downfield plays develop.

Ole Miss (2-0) vs Tulane (1-1) Game Preview


Why Tulane Will Win

If Tulane could put together the fourth quarter against Oklahoma and the first half against Morgan State and keep doing that for the rest of the year, it would be the most dominant force in college football.

The offense has the fight and firepower to keep up with the Ole Miss juggernaut attack. Last week was a work-some-stuff-out 69-20 win over Morgan State after coming close to beating OU on an epic comeback. Now it’s time to see if it can all come together in a big road upset.

The O is working, but the other parts have been great, too. The Green Wave lead the nation in punting, and the defense has been outstanding on third downs thanks to a good pass rush – a must to pressure Ole Miss QB Matt Corral.

Overall this is an experienced team that’s been through a whole lot over the last few weeks. It’ll be able to handle the SEC road environment.

Why Ole Miss Will Win

Corral is on fire.

There’s no reason to gush over a win against Austin Peay, but Corral was able to crank up five touchdown passes in the exhibition after a brilliant 381-yard day to open the season against Louisville.

The offense is fast, efficient, and it’s got the ability to score in bunches to either turn the lights out quickly, or come back if Tulane gets on a scoring run of its own.

Best of all – after a 2020 with little to no help from the other side – the Ole Miss defense has been okay. The pass rush is great, the run defense has been good enough, and overall this group isn’t going to be a total liability.

What’s Going To Happen

Tulane will hang around more than you might think.

Yeah, the Ole Miss offense has looked great so far, but Louisville’s defense isn’t anything big and forget about anything that happened against Austin Peay. Tulane has enough defensive chops to keep the Rebels from going off, especially on third downs – a problem so far converting just 30% of its chances.

The Green Wave won’t pull off the win, but they’ll hang around long enough to make this a ball game – a really fun ball game.
