The -14 point spread is incredibly high considering the fact that Mike Price is standing on the other sideline and this gentleman knows how to coach up a team. On the flip side of this logic is the fact that Tulsa is real good, he could run away and hide by half time.
Cincinnati Bengals' quarterback Carson Palmer's younger brother Jordan is the UTEP QB and has thrown for 1860 yards, but has also given the ball away 10 times and he needs to do a better job in this area.
The road team is 7-3 the past 10 games against the spread and Tulsa has covered the last two years as a dog. How will they handle the role of the bully is the question here?
