Tulsa WR Keevan Lucas will attend the East-West Shrine Game.

Lucas posted an 81-1180-15 receiving line over 13 games this season and is an outstanding get for this all star game. Tulsa uses a wide open offense, so it will be worth watching Lucas' alignment and get off during practice week. We will be there to cover the action.

Tulsa junior RB D'Angelo Brewer rushed for 105 yards on 17 carries in Monday's 55-10 win over Central Michigan in the Miami Beach Bowl.

Tulsa's two-headed running back monster was at it again. Brewer sliced through Central Michigan for 105 yards to lead the Golden Hurricane on the ground, while backfield buddy James Flanders took 17 carries of his own and spun them into 100 yards and a touchdown. For his part, the 5-foot-9, 185-pound Brewer finishes up the 2016 campaign having rushed for 1,435 yards and seven touchdowns.

Tulsa senior WR Joshua Atkinson caught 12 passes for 131 yards and a touchdown in Monday's 55-10 win over Central Michigan in the Miami Beach Bowl.

A sign of how productive Tulsa's offense was this season -- during Monday's Miami Beach Bowl victory, the Golden Hurricane became the first team in FBS history to house a 3,000-yard passer (Dane Evans), two 1,000-yard wideouts (Atkinson and Keevan Lucas) and two 1,000-yard rushers (D'Angelo Brewer and James Flanders) in the same season. Impressive work all the way around. For his part, the 6-foot-2, 208-pound Atkinson finished his senior season with the Golden Hurricane having caught 78 passes for 1,058 yards and eight touchdowns.

Tulsa senior WR Keevan Lucas caught seven passes for 72 yards and three touchdowns in Monday's 55-10 win over Central Michigan in the Miami Beach Bowl.

Two of Lucas' three touchdown grabs came in the third quarter, as QB Dane Evans hit him from 28 and 11 yards out to help extend a 27-3 halftime advantage. That 11-yarder made the score 48-3. The 5-foot-10, 198-pounder was sidelined midway through the 2015 season with a torn patella tendon, but has done fantastic work to return from that serious injury. He played in all 13 of Tulsa's games this season, building a lovely 81-1180-15 receiving line along the way.

Tulsa redshirt senior QB Dane Evans completed 28-of-38 passes for 304 yards and five touchdowns in Monday's 55-10 win over Central Michigan in the Miami Beach Bowl.

Now that's how you wrap up your college career. Evans tossed a trio of touchdowns in the first half as the Golden Hurricane trotted out to a 27-3 halftime advantage, then kept his foot on pedal with another two scoring passes in the third quarter. The 6-foot-1, 218-pounder finishes his final season of collegiate play having thrown for 3,348 yards with a 32/12 TD/INT over the course of 13 games. He walks into the sunset holding a career 84/47 TD/INT ratio.

Central Michigan will play Tulsa in the Miami Beach Bowl on Monday.

Tulsa is currently an 11.5-point favorite. That makes sense, as Central Michigan has basically cratered since being gifted the September win over Oklahoma State. The Chips have lost four of five and haven't topped 24 points since mid-October despite starting a quarterback (Cooper Rush) who will be in an NFL camp next summer. Tulsa has no such offensive problems. Led by QB Dane Evans (3,044 yards passing, 27/12 TD/INT ratio), two 1,300-yard-plus RBs and WR Keevan Lucas (74 receptions 1,108 yards 12 TD), the Golden Hurricanes average 41 points and change per contest.

Tulsa redshirt senior RB James Flanders rushed for 197 yards and two touchdowns on 39 carries in Friday's 40-37 overtime win over Cincinnati.

Yet another brilliant effort by Flanders, who has now rushed for at least 160 yards in five of his last six games. The 5-foot-10, 203-pounder averaged a relatively modest 5.05 YPC, but accumulated his mega-yardage total on volume of carry. It was Flanders' four-yard touchdown run in overtime which propelled the Golden Hurricane to victory. Through 12 games, he has rushed for 1,529 yards and 17 touchdowns.

Tulsa junior RB D'Angelo Brewer rushed for 167 yards and two touchdowns on 25 carries in Saturday's 35-20 win over UCF.

Brewer scored on a two-yard run near the beginning of the second quarter and would loop back around for a little eight-yard touchdown scamper in the closing seconds of the third quarter. The 5-foot-9, 185-pound junior averaged 6.7 YPC and ripped off a long run of 41 yards in the victory. For the season as a whole, Brewer has rushed for 1,231 yards (5.4 YPC) and seven touchdowns across 10 games played. The Golden Hurricane will call it good on the regular season after next Friday's contest against Cincinnati. That one is looking like a relatively breezy opportunity at this point, as the Bearcats are hitting the end of the season having lost six of their last seven games. At 8-3, Tulsa is already guaranteed a bowl berth.

Tulsa redshirt senior QB Dane Evans completed 16-of-27 passes for 369 yards, four touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 42-40 loss to Navy.

In a tight, offense-happy game -- Navy held a 28-27 lead after three quarters -- Evans wasn't quite able to lead his team over the hump. After the teams traded fourth-quarter scores, Evans' 22-yard touchdown pass to Chris Minter with 5:35 remaining would draw the Golden Hurricane to within 42-40. They subsequently opted to kickoff deep rather than attempt an onside kick. Big mistake. With Tulsa holding just one timeout, Navy would not give the ball back. For his part, the 6-foot-1, 218-pound Evans has thrown 12 of his 22 touchdown passes in the last four games.

Tulsa RB James Flanders went off for 249 yards and five touchdowns on 33 carries against Memphis on Saturday.

Because of an ankle injury, starter D'Angelo Brewer did not enter the game. Brewer did suit up, however, which should tell you how close he is to returning. But since Flanders had himself a day in Brewer's steed, he may have earned additional usage heading forward.
Thu, Nov 3, 2016 06:40:00 PM

Tulsa senior WR Joshua Atkinson grabbed four balls for 72 yards against Memphis on Saturday.

Atkinson has a little work ahead of him if he wants to exceed 1,000 yards on again. He sports a 44-591-3 line so far. Tulsa has an entertaining matchup against ECU on on deck.
Mon, Oct 31, 2016 05:57:00 PM

Tulsa redshirt senior QB Dane Evans completed 14-of-23 passes for 236 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 50-27 win over Tulane.

No real heroics needed from Evans here, as the Golden Hurricane leaned hard on the running game and were rewarded with 330 team yards on the ground. The 6-foot-1, 218-pound Evans tossed all three of his touchdowns in the first half. 10 of Evans 13 scoring passes this season have come in just three games (against North Carolina A&T, Fresno State and now Tulane).
Sat, Oct 22, 2016 10:29:00 PM

Tulsa senior WR Keevan Lucas caught five passes for 88 yards in Saturday's 38-31 loss to Houston.

The Golden Hurricane had a nice, balanced aerial attack going in this one, with three wideouts logging more than 85 yards receiving. Lucas averaged a shiny 16.6 yards per catch in the narrow defeat. Through six games, the senior standout has now caught 39 passes for 588 yards and five touchdowns. He has notched at least five catches in all but one contest during the 2016 campaign.
Sat, Oct 15, 2016 11:41:00 PM

Tulsa redshirt senior QB Dane Evans completed 27-of-51 passes for 365 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Saturday's 38-31 loss to Houston.

Evans was almost able to tie up the Cougars when he hit Jesse Brubaker with a one-yard pass right at the goal-line, but one yard would just not be enough. Brubaker was stood up and taken down before the ball could cross the plane. This was Evans' first 300-yard passing effort of the 2016 campaign. Overall, he has thrown for 1,492 yards with a 10/7 TD/INT ratio through six games played.
Sat, Oct 15, 2016 11:23:00 PM

Tulsa senior WR Joshua Atkinson caught 11 passes for 115 yards and one touchdown in an overtime win over SMU on Friday.

As a point of comparison, fellow starter WR Keevan Lucas caught 12 passes for 113 yards against the Ponies. The Golden Hurricane needed the aerial show because SMU proved to be a game underdog, forcing the extra frame as two-TD-plus underdogs. Atkinson (6-foot-2, 208 pounds) owns a 32-354-2 line so far.
