2014 Tulane Green Wave Football Schedule, Prediction

Last year the Tulane Green Wave halted a streak of 11 straight seasons without a bowl bid by going 7-6 on the year. They lost to Louisiana in the New Orleans bowl to end the year. In 2014 they have a new stadium and momentum, but they do step up in class with their move to the American Athletic Conference and that may have them taking a step back this year. Prediction & Schedule below.

The offense for Tulane was not indicative of a team that won 7 games as they finished ranked 115th in the nation in total offense. This year they will go through some more offensive struggles as they lose RB Orleans Darkwa (869 yrds, 12 TDs) and WR Ryan Grant (1039 yrd, 9 TDs) from last year. QB Nick Montana is back, but it looks as if rFr Tanner Lee will get a chance to run the offense after an impressive spring. He does have back the next 4 top rushers from a year ago and the next 7 pass catchers back as well The OL is talented and deep. The defense is what really got this team to 7 wins last year, as they allowed just 21.4 ppg and 351 ypg. Despite the fact that they have 6 starters and 22 lettermen back from last year, they also have just 3 of their top 9 tacklers back, which could mean a step back for this defense this year. The secondary is the strength of this unit, but most of the DL and LB corps must be rebuilt and will struggle some.

The Green Wave broke a long postseason drought last year, but I feel it will be just a 1 year bowl streak for them. The offense is in the hands of a redshirt freshman and the top 2 weapons from last year are gone. I feel that they will improve on their 115 th ranking in total offense from last year, but not sure they can put up more than the 24.8 ppg they put up last year. The defense has many holes in the front 7 and will not be nearly as good as last year’s group. Tulane moves to the AAC this year, but it will not be a winning one as I expect no more than 5 wins from them.  KEY TREND: The Green Wave are 1-8 ATS in their last 9 games vs Tulsa.
