Tulsa senior RB D'Angelo Brewer ran for 140 yards and a score on 23 carries in a 45-17 crushing of Houston on Saturday.

Brewer (5'9/190) was again outstanding on Saturday, as he has been all season outside of the season opening loss to Oklahoma State. It's the fourth time this year that the senior tailback has gone over 130 yards. His touchdown was a 46-yard dash through the Houston defense to give the Hurricane a two touchdown lead at 24-10 at the end of the third quarter. Expect Brewer to go over the century mark next week against Memphis.
Oct 14 - 7:20 PM

Tulsa redshirt freshman QB Luke Skipper started against Houston on Saturday.

Skipper will be making his first start of the season, pushing Chad President to the bench in the process. He replaced an ineffective President against Tulane last weekend, throwing for 256 yards and a touchdown in that 62-28 loss.
Oct 14 - 4:32 PM

Tulsa sophomore WR Keenen Johnson had six receptions for a career-high 131 yards in Saturday's lopsided loss to Tulane.

Big bounce-back effort for Johnson, who had three catches for 14 yards combined over the past two games. Johnson (6'1/196) caught 30 passes for 305 yards (10.2 yards per reception) and a touchdown as a freshman last year. He's caught five or more passes in four out of six games this fall.
Oct 7 - 5:38 PM

Tulsa redshirt freshman QB Luke Skipper came on in relief of Chad President to complete 10-for-14 for 256 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 62-28 loss to Tulane.

With President looking utterly lost, and the game getting out of hand early (it was 48-7 at halftime), the Golden Hurricanes turned to Skipper. Skipper looked good, but of course the game had been decided when most of his work was done. With the way he played, it wouldn't be a surprise if Tulsa hands the job over to him going forward. The 1-5 Hurricanes get Houston next.
Oct 7 - 2:27 PM

Tulsa junior QB Chad President completed 12-of-18 passes for 115 yards and a touchdown while rushing for 151 yards and a touchdown on 12 attempts in Saturday's 31-21 loss to Navy.

President has yet to truly put it together as a passer this season -- he has thrown for just two touchdowns in five games -- but has started to utilize his legs more in lieu of the aerial show. To whit, the 6-foot-3, 206-pounder has surpassed 130 yards on the ground in two of his last three games. That's stellar, obviously, but President has now failed to throw for 200 yards in four of five contests.
Sep 30 - 8:53 PM

Tulsa sophomore RB Corey Taylor II (undisclosed) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Navy.

Taylor (5'10/200) has now been nixed for three games this season due to his injury concern. D'Angelo Brewer and Shamari Brooks will receive the bulk of carries against the Midshipmen in Saturday's showdown.
Sep 30 - 3:19 PM

Tulsa senior RB D'Angelo Brewer ran for 152 yards and a score in a 54-51 loss to Toledo on Saturday.

Defense was nowhere to be found on Saturday. Toledo did their damage through the air, the Hurricane did it on the ground. Brewer (5'9/190) was one of three to run for over 100 yards in the game for Tulsa, and he's now run for over 400 yards in his last two games. His touchdown was a one-yard plunge that gave the Hurricane a 37-34 lead with just under a minute left in the third quarter.
Sep 16 - 11:09 PM

Tulsa junior QB Chad President ran for two scores and completed 14-of-20 passes for 243 yards and a score in a 66-42 victory over Louisiana.

President was much more accurate throwing against the Ragin' Cajuns, and he still showed off his impressive legs. His touchdown pass was a 69-yard slant to Justin Hobbs, and he ran for two scores inside of the five yard line to keep up the impressive scoring pace. It was against a much easier opponent, but it's nice to see the junior improve substantially.
Sep 9 - 7:58 PM

Tulsa reshirt junior WR Justin Hobbs caught five passes for 103 yards and a touchdown in a 66-42 victory over Louisiana on Saturday.

The Hurricane probably could have won this game without attempting a pass with D'Angelo Brewer going off on the ground, but Hobbs (6'4/207) was still able to have a very effective day. His touchdown was a nice 69-yard slant from Tulsa QB Chad President to give Tulsa a 31-23 lead late in the second. Brewer is going to be the go-to player in the offense, but Hobbs should see his share of chances in the offense, as well.
Sep 9 - 7:53 PM

Tulsa senior RB D'Angelo Brewer ran for 267 yards and three touchdowns in a 66-42 victory over Louisiana on Saturday.

Brewer couldn't find any room against Oklahoma State, but he found plenty against the woeful Louisiana defense on Saturday. His first score was a 50-yard stroll in the first quarter to make it 10-3 in favor of the Hurricanes. He then had a pair of one-yard scores, the first coming in the third to give Tulsa a 45-35 lead, and the second coming in the middle of the fourth to make it 59-42 to put the game away. Keep in mind Brewer ran for 1,425 yards last year, so he's more likely to have impact games like this than the ineffective effort against OSU.
Sep 9 - 7:47 PM

Tulsa senior RB D'Angelo Brewer ran for 33 yards on 22 carries on Thursday in a 59-24 loss to Oklahoma State.

Last year, the 5-foot-9, 190-pound Brewer ran for 1,425 yards and seven scores. It appears Oklahoma State was well aware of that information, as they loaded the box to stop the Hurricane's best player. He was stopped behind the line several times, and his long carry on the night was ten yards. There will be better games ahead for Brewer, but Tulsa is going to have to throw the ball more effectively going forward to open some space.
Aug 31 - 11:37 PM

Tulsa junior QB Chad President went 18-for-35 for 178 yards in Thursday's 59-24 loss to Oklahoma State.

No political puns, we promise. President was overmatched against the OSU defense, but the 6-foot-3, 205-pounder did show flashes of promise. A former four-star recruit who started his collegiate career at Baylor, President did show impressive speed, rushing for 69 yards on eight carries. He didn't show much pocket presence, however, and he was woefully inaccurate on throws down the field. He'll get a much easier challenge next weekend when the Hurricanes take on ULL next Saturday.
Aug 31 - 11:32 PM

Tulsa junior QB Chad President started Thursday's game against Oklahoma State.

President earned the opening snaps over freshman gunslinger Luke Skipper. Prior to the Thursday start, the 6-foot-3, 206-pounder had played in seven games for the Golden Hurricane during his career.
Aug 31 - 7:56 PM

Tulsa redshirt junior RB Ramadi Warren has been ruled academically ineligible for the season.

Warren (5'9/175) also missed the 2016 season due to academic ineligibility. He needed to complete 12 credit hours this summer in order to return to good standing with the football team. No dice on that front. D'Angelo Brewer remains the Golden Hurricane's starting back, with Corey Taylor II and true freshman Shamari Brooks candidates to receive closer looks now that Warren is out of the picture.

Aug 31 - 12:51 PM

Tulsa redshirt junior WR Justin Hobbs hauled in a 16-yard touchdown pass during the team's spring game.

Hobbs (6'4/207) has registered at least 550 yards receiving in each of his first two active seasons with the Golden Hurricane. For the past campaign, he logged a 50-685-4 receiving line, numbers which could be in for a major boost now that Josh Atkinson and Keevan Lucas are no longer around to suck up targets. Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom ranks Hobbs as the No. 20 fantasy wideout in college football.
