Why Tulsa can cover
The Golden Hurricane have struggled to get consistent quarterback play while rotating signal-callers throughout the first four games. But Tulsa coach Kevin Wilson appears set to go with freshman Cardell Williams under center despite an uneven performance against Northern Illinois.
Williams split time with junior Roman Fuller in the first three games but saw all the snaps in last week's win over the Huskies. He went just 8-for-20 passing for 102 yards with zero touchdowns and two interceptions. Even so, Williams earned praise for his improvisational skills when a play breaks down and his willingness to take shots downfield. Senior receiver Kamdyn Benjamin told the media this week that the team has confidence in Williams' skills and teammates are drawn to the signal-caller's leadership ability.

Why Temple can cover
The Owls were undone against Miami by three turnovers that led to scores and their inability to stop an offense that now ranks No. 8 in the country at 43.8 points per game. The Owls allowed 542 yards of total offense in the rain-drenched contest while only compiling 279 of their own. Even so, Temple managed 268 passing yards to 220 for Miami and continued to build on what has emerged as a formidable passing attack.
Sophomore E.J. Warner completed 22 of 39 passes for 240 yards and a touchdown with a touchdown against two interceptions. For the season, he has thrown for 1,000 yards and five touchdowns against four picks. Senior receiver Amad Anderson Jr. has proven to be a reliable threat on the outside. Against Miami, he tallied a season-high in receptions and yards with 10 catches for 117 yards. Junior Dante Wright also has been dependable, with 16 receptions for 185 yards and a touchdown.
