The Texas State football team, currently in a two-game losing streak, and the Tulsa Hurricanes, 1-2 overall, are heading into their Sept. 27 matchup.
The victor will have a 50.0 winning percentage in nonconference play.
“These are two teams that want to win,” Coach Dennis Franchione said. “We both want to get back in the good column, especially being our last game before conference play.”
Franchione did not make a big adjustment in practice, as both Tulsa and Illinois generate offense with passing rather than running.
“There is really not much of a preparation difference,” senior cornerback Craig Mager said. “They both like to throw the ball whether it is a pro-style offense or spread. Just a few little things here and there.”
