Tulsa was in the race for the Conference USA West division title until the last week of the regular season. The Golden Hurricane finished 8-5 but played a very tough schedule losing to Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Boise State, Houston, and BYU. Quarterback GJ Kinnie passed for 3,090 yards and 28 touchdowns. Tulsa had a one two punch at running back. Ja’Terian Douglas gained 883 yards and Trey Watts gained 881. Wide receivers Willie Carter and Bryan Burnham combined for 115 catches and 16 touchdowns. The defense gave up 27 points a game and had problems stopping pass as they gave up 286 yards per contest.
The Golden Hurricane has 6 starters returning on offense including the top two rushers and receivers. Nebraska transfer Cody Green will take over for the departed GJ Kinnie at quarterback. The offensive line lost three starters. Tulsa‘s offense will be potent in 2012 and if the defense can improve against the pass the Golden Hurricane will be in the mix for the C-USA West title. 8 wins for Tulsa in 2012.
