Tulsa football cracks AP Top 25

It’s been a while – almost a decade – since the last time the Golden Hurricane was ranked in the Associated Press Top 25 Football Poll. Following a big come-from-behind victory against a ranked opponent, that is where TU finds itself this week.

Tulsa (4-1) broke into the Top 25 ranking at the No. 25 spot after at 28-24 victory over then-No. 19 SMU. The Hurricane trailed 24-7 at the break and scored 21 unanswered point in the second half for the win.

It marked the first time in program history that Tulsa has beaten two ranked opponents in the same season.

Tulsa next has a Thursday night matchup with Tulane at Chapman Stadium. The game will be broadcast on ESPN.
