Series Ledger: 1-1 TIE!
Last Meeting: 41-18 Central Michigan 10/17/1987

Two Midwest mid-majors descend on sunny South Florida to square off in the Miami Beach Bowl. Central Michigan started strong but faltered in MAC play, barely scraping into bowl eligibility. Tulsa meanwhile are looking dangerous, they can score on basically anybody and assure this will be a high scoring affair.

Video: GJ Kinne Back From the Dead

Forget for a second that Oklahoma faces GJ Kinne at the Golden Hurricane on September 3.  Sometimes we don’t remember the fact that football players are people just like us.  With stories from their past that make them who they are today.  I know this is a Sooner blog, but GJ, best of luck to you in the future.  I’m glad that it was God plan that you got your father back.

This is what I put up with from the special little demon that lives inside of me:
I think I'm gonna get it really drunk, then bind it with duct tape, leave it somewhere across town, and see if it can find its way home.

“Heeeeey, you remember how OU fought and bit and clawed and scratched its way back from down 17-3 to winning at Tennessee in double overtime last weekend? So wouldn’t it be a real kick in the head if they got upset by Tulsa at home?”

Oh and the scheduling gods made this an 11 a.m. game, so my consciousness at that hour may, or may not, be optimum.
