Oklahoma football betting extends to placing wagers on the Tulsa Golden Hurricane. Playing since 1895, the University of Tulsa football team battles in the American Athletic Conference and was formerly a member of Conference USA. Tulsa is currently coached by Philip Montgomery, who will be entering his third season with the Golden Hurricane.
Tulsa plays with a slight disadvantage to larger schools as the program claims the smallest undergraduate enrollment level of all colleges with an NCAA Bowl Subdivision football designation. The team also plays in a smaller stadium than most, with just a 30,000-seat capacity for Skelly Field at H.A. Chapman Stadium. The Golden Hurricane claim 2 conference titles (Conference USA) and 2 consensus All-Americans. Other prominent Oklahoma college football teams include the Oklahoma Sooners football team and the Oklahoma State Cowboys football team.
While Oklahoma football betting is more skewed towards the Oklahoma Sooners and OSU Cowboys, the Golden Hurricane are still eligible for wagering via licensed offshore sportsbook operators. This page was created as a guide for Golden Hurricane betting and has information on their last season as well as a preview of their 2017/18 season. Other prominent Oklahoma college football teams include the Oklahoma Sooners football team and the Oklahoma State Cowboys football team.

The Tulsa Golden Hurricane 2017 Season
Tulsa was a surprise out of last season, going 10-3 in coach Philip Montgomery’s second season with the program. They lost a few key offensive players, but the defense has 7 starters making a return. It is unlikely that the program can muster another 10-win season, but they could repeat with another bowl game (they won last year’s Miami Beach Bowl against Central Michigan). Tulsa set an FBS record last year by being the first team to boast a 3,000-yard passer, 2 1,000-yard receivers and 2 1,000-yard rushers. RB R’Angelo Brewer is the only returning player that contributed to their offensive onslaught.
Their offensive line returned 4 starters, including C Chandler Miller, a first-team all-conference player in 2016. One of their biggest concerns comes in at QB, and there best 2 options are the inexperienced Chad President and Luke Skipper. They lost 2 noteworthy receivers in Josh Atkinson and Keevan Lucas, but they still possess Justin Hobbs, Keenan Johnson and Keylon Stokes. The defense has an experienced core, but they have gaps in vital spots. Montgomery signed 6 DBs to cover, but only time will tell if they integrate well. Last season was a huge improvement from their 2-10 2015 campaign, but it will be difficult to threaten in their division given the issues with offense. If their young defensive group can play out, they could snag a bowl game berth.
