09/05/2012 - THIS WEEK'S GAME: Tulane at Tulsa, Sept. 8 -- Tulane, which hasn't been to a bowl game since 2002, has gotten into the habit of compiling long losing streaks that begin early in the season and end any hope for success. After losing the opener, the Green Wave needs a victory or at least an encouraging performance before a "here we go again" mindset returns. KEYS TO THE GAME: The Green Wave has to find a way to run the ball much better than they did in accumulating only eight yards on 16 carries against Rutgers. A viable running threat would make QB Ryan Griffin's job easier as well as the defense's. Speaking of the defense, if it can keep the yardage to manageable number and have a couple of takeaways, as it did last week, Tulane will have a chance. - The Sports Xchange
