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.
Nov 26 - 11:55 AM

Tulsa sophomore 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 sophomore 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.
Nov 20 - 12:21 PM

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.
Nov 12 - 3:40 PM

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.
Nov 3 - 6:40 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.
Oct 31 - 5:57 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).
Oct 22 - 10:29 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.
Oct 15 - 11:41 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.
Oct 15 - 11:23 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.
Oct 8 - 5:38 PM

Tulsa sophomore RB D'Angelo Brewer rushed for 182 yards and a touchdown on 38 carries in Friday's 43-40 overtime win over SMU.

Brewer wasn't always ripping off huge runs at the drop of a dime -- he averaged 4.8 YPC -- but finished with a juicy enough yardage total nonetheless, thanks to those 38 carries. To say that the 5-foot-9, 185-pound sophomore has been carrying a heavy load of late is an understatement. Those 38 carries weren't even his season-high. He toted the rock 46 times against Fresno State two weekends ago. In that one, he ended up with 252 yards rushing. He does have two contests of 60 or fewer yards rushing, but at this juncture, he is worth a waiver-wire pickup.
Oct 8 - 12:43 AM

Tulsa redshirt senior QB Dane Evans completed 22-of-31 passes for 273 yards, four touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 48-41 double-overtime win over Fresno State.

Evans held a 1/4 TD/INT ratio through the first two games of the season, but he has flipped matters around with a 7/2 mark over the last two. All four of those early interceptions came against Ohio State on September 10. That'll happen. The 6-foot-1, 218-pound redshirt senior threw 29 touchdown passes a year ago.
Sep 24 - 10:29 PM

Tulsa redshirt senior QB Dane Evans was horrendous in Saturday's 48-3 loss to Ohio State, completing 15-of-32 passes for 127 yards, no touchdowns and four interceptions.

To add injury to insult, Ohio State returned two of Evans' four picks for touchdowns. Both came in a three-minute stretch near the end of the first half, boosting the Buckeyes from a 6-3 advantage to a 20-3 edge. This game is not indicative of Evans' talent -- last season, the 6-foot-1, 218-pounder threw for 4,332 yards (62.9% completions) with a 25/8 TD/INT ratio.
Sep 10 - 8:27 PM

Tulsa senior WR Keevan Lucas (knee) indicated that he is still knocking off the rust following a 10-month layoff from football.

Lucas tore the patella tendon in his right knee during a loss to Houston last October. He admitted that he is not in "football shape" yet, but said, "It’s been a long, long 10 months of rehabbing and being in the training room. It feels good to apply that work I’ve been putting in to get back out here." The 5-foot-10, 198-pounder added that rust aside, he is at 100% health-wise, by far the most important takeaway from his participation in the early portion of Tulsa's camp. In a healthy 2014 campaign, he caught 101 passes for 1,219 yards and 11 touchdowns.
Aug 9 - 12:26 PM

NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter ranked Carolina's UDFA class No. 5 in the NFL.

This showing was crucial, because the Panthers tied the Saints with a league-low five draft picks. " I guess Jeremy Cash was considered a 'tweener by NFL teams, but I'll take him on my team anytime," Reuter wrote. "Whether he plays safety or linebacker for the Panthers, he'll make plays. Keyarris Garrett was another find after the draft who will be in the mix for the fifth receiver spot." The analyst believes UDFA signee TE Jake McGee is a superior player to Day 3 pick Beau Sandland right now, and further thinks LB Jared Norris "should stick as a capable inside/outside linebacker and special-teams force."

May 6 - 4:19 PM

Panthers signed Tulsa WR Keyarris Garrett.

Garrett (6'3/220) led the nation in receiving as a fifth-year senior, catching 96 passes for 1,588 yards (16.5 YPR) and eight TDs. Garrett combines a wide catch radius (34 1/2-inch arms) with Dez Bryant-like Combine numbers, running 4.53 with a 36 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot-8 broad jump. Garrett's weaknesses are his inconsistent hands and routes. He's also old for a rookie, turning 24 in September. Garrett is still an exciting talent with big-time vertical tools and lots of experience working underneath. He has a chance to develop into an NFL starter.
