Why Tulsa can cover
Tulsa's pass defense has been playing rock solid. This group communicates well on the backend and doesn't let much get over their heads. Senior cornerback Tyon Davis is making plays on a consistent basis. Davis is very alert and aware, swatting the ball away from the receiver's hands. He's first on the team in pass deflections (11) with 46 total tackles and one interception. Last week, he logged eight total stops, three pass breakups, and one forced fumble.
Senior safety Bryson Powers lines up near the line of scrimmage to help out against running backs and tight ends. Powers is an instinctive defender who owns good play-recognition skills. The Texas native wraps up well, leading the team in total tackles (85). He's finished with double-digit stops in three games thus far.
Why South Florida can cover
Junior receiver Xavier Weaver is the go-to option in the aerial attack. Weaver has showcased terrific hands and route running to get open on a regular basis. The Florida native rolls into this matchup seventh in the conference in receiving yards (718) and receiving yards per game (79.8). On Nov. 5, he snagged six receptions for 119 yards and two scores.
Sophomore receiver Jimmy Horn Jr. is another weapon for the Bulls. Horn Jr. is shifty and evasive in open space with the quickness to make defenders miss. The Florida native has great deep speed and can track the ball well. He has 26 catches, 459 yards and three touchdowns. Horn Jr. is also first on the squad with 17.7 yards per reception.
