Happy with the outcome but concerned abut the O's lack of production in the first 3 quarters. Happy about the win but I prefer the 'get out front early' teams of 5-0 Mustangs over the Cardiac Kids of the last game.

That is two weeks in a row where our opponent had a bye week before playing us. That has to help the other team with prep. Nice that we have a bye this week to heal up and prepare for Temple.

It definitely does. I believe Tulsa's D is on par with Clemson and Bama for average weight. Factor in the bye week so their enormous player were very fresh and rested, and our guys had already played 5 straight games. Thats probably a big reason why we struggled in the trenches for a majority of the game.

Of all of the comeback games listed, were there any others where the deficit was in the 4th quarter?

Also, kudos to the photographer. What a perfect shot!
