A recap and thoughts on Tulane's tough loss to the Miners in El Paso.
Tulane's Opponent Results (Week 8)
UAB (1-6, 0-3 CUSA) – Lost to East Carolina 35-42
Rice (2-6, 0-4 CUSA) – Lost to Tulsa 24-28
Memphis (1-6, 1-2 CUSA) – Lost to UCF 17-35
East Carolina (5-3, 4-1 CUSA) – Beat UAB 42-35
Houston (3-4, 2-1 CUSA) – Lost to SMU 42-72
Tulane is now 4th in the Western Division of C-USA, with only UTEP and Rice below them in the standings. UAB and Memphis still look to be very winnable games, but Rice was giving the top ranked Tulsa team fits on Saturday. Houston showed it had a turnover problem against SMU, so with the continued growth of our defense, we could give the Cougars similar problems. With five games remaining, Tulane is sitting right at 1-6, which starts to beg the question: will Coach Johnson begin preparing younger players for next season, or will Tulane stick it out until their post season chances are officially gone? Tulane Insider will find this out during practice this week as the team prepares for the game against UAB.
