    Based off the 2019 version, this is a 3 game round robin format. Duquesne went 3-0 beating Indiana St, Air Force and Loyola Marymount in the fall.

    I like our field better as we aren't getting BYU or BC on home-and-home deals. Geographically, Tulsa isn't the type of school we would typically play.
    But as KA said, we are certainly looked at as fodder in this group.

    Isn't Tulsa nicknamed the "Golden Showers" or something like that?

    Yes, they are the Golden Showers. They may deny it, but who has ever heard of a yellow hurricane (see below)? And Oklahoma is a landlocked state. They do not get hurricanes. Their story is unravelling.

    https://tulsahurricane.com/sports/2018/4/16/general-info-quick-facts.aspx:

    "Why is Golden Hurricane the school's nickname?
    The origination of The University of Tulsa nickname –– Golden Hurricane –– came In 1922. The football team began working out in the fall with a new nickname "Yellow Jackets." In the past, Tulsa had been named "Kendallites," "Presbyterians," Tigers," "Orange and Black," "Tulsans," and, of course, "Yellow Jackets.” Head Coach Howard Acher made a remark in practice about "roaring through opponents,” and at that point it was seriously considered to name the team "Golden Tornadoes". However, it was learned that Georgia Tech already had chosen that tag in 1917. From the tornado, Acher evolved meteorologically to the hurricane. A few days before the team left for a game against Texas A&M, Acher asked the squad to vote on the name "Golden Hurricane," the gold being added because of the color of their new jerseys."
