Since joining Conference USA before
the 2005 season, the Golden Hurricane of Tulsa have played in two of
three conference title games. They’ve split those two meetings with UCF (winning
in 2005, losing last season), and the year in which they didn’t play in the
title game they finished one game out of first place. But even with the loss of
exceptional quarterback Paul Smith, Todd Graham’s squad looks poised to win
their second C-USA crown.
