Connecticut Tulane Live Streaming Online Football Game Score TV (ESPN) Radio Internet Broadcast. SMU is the worst team in the American. Connecticut and Tulane want to be sure they don’t enter the discussion following Week 7. The Huskies and Green Wave are off to rocky starts, going 0-8 combined against fellow FBS opponents. And if either team hopes to be in the bowl-eligibility hunt in November, winning this week at Yulman Stadium is an absolute must.
Why Connecticut Might Win: Defense has not been the problem this season in East Hartford. The unit, in fact, is holding its own under difficult circumstances, especially against the run. And the Huskies’ issues against the pass might not get noticed versus a Tulane team having quarterback issues. The Green Wave is 118th nationally in passing efficiency, and starting QB Tanner Lee is a question mark with a shoulder injury.
Why Tulane Might Win: As inconsistent as the Green Wave offense was at the end of September, UConn was worse. The Huskies average only 14 points per game, and neither the ground game nor the passing attack will intimidate the athletic back seven of the Tulane defense. At a minimum, the Green Wave can count on a ground game that’s gotten 100-yard days from Sherman Badie and Lazedrick Thompson this fall.
Who To Watch Out For: It’s about time for the Tulane D-line to have a bigger impact on games. Tanzel Smart and ends Royce LaFrance and Tyler Gilbert have upside potential, yet they’ve combined for only 1.5 of the Green Wave’s seven sacks. That production must change against a Connecticut O-line that’s allowed more sacks than all but four FBS teams.
What’s Going To Happen: In a battle of offensive futility, Tulane has the closest thing to a staple, Badie and Thompson operating behind a line that does a nice job of run blocking. The backs will be the difference at home, producing points and extending drives that might otherwise end in punts.
Prediction: Tulane 23 … Connecticut 17
Line: Tulane -3 o/u: 45.5

Tulsa (1-4) at Temple (3-1) Oct. 11, 12:00, ESPNEWS
Here’s The Deal: Temple was happy to a week off, but it’s also eager to get back to work. The Owls are off to a solid start in Matt Rhule second season, moving two games over .500 with road blowouts of Vanderbilt and Connecticut. The early success has the program thinking postseason for a change, but this week’s visit from Tulsa begins a stretch of six challenging games in six weeks. The Golden Hurricane has been anything but golden in the first half of the 2014 season. Since winning the opener with Tulane, Tulsa has dropped four straight, three by no less than 25 points.
Why Tulsa Might Win: Have the receivers been used enough this season? No. But the Hurricane houses a collection of game-changers on the outside, including Keevan Lucas and Keyarris Garrett. Now, it’s up to erratic QB Dane Evans to properly feed them. Yeah, Temple has been solid defensively, but it hasn’t faced a good passing attack all year.
Why Temple Might Win: The Owls’ edge under center is significant. Evans is a crapshoot, but Temple’s P.J. Walker is an up-and-comer. He’s accounted for nine touchdowns in four games, and now he gets to carve up a porous Tulsa defense. The Hurricane has yet to keep a team under 31 points, and both the pass defense and run defense have been atrocious. Opponents are averaging more than six yards a carry on Tulsa.
Who To Watch Out For: This is a good spot for Rhule to get his backs more involved with the offense, while taking some heat off Walker. Tulsa can’t stop anyone at the point of attack, and Jamie Gilmore and Kenneth Harper are better than their early season numbers indicate.
What’s Going To Happen: Tulsa wants no part of a trip to Philadelphia as it remains mired in a four-game slump. And it’ll show. Temple is on a bit of a high after slamming Connecticut two weeks ago. The Owls will build on that 36-10 win by riding the coattails of Walker to a comfortable victory at the Linc.20 mins ago - Connecticut vs Tulane live streaming NCAA college football is an exclusive match, You Are MOST welcome TO Watch NCAA Connecticut vs ...
