    Thanks for posting this. Hard to believe Toledo put up those kind of numbers against Fresno State, but still lost in OT to them. Tulsa hasn’t lost a beat this year after ranking first in the nation in offense last season. Yeah, David Johnson, the same one who leads the nation in passing yards per game, is in his first full year as starter for the Golden Hurricanes. That’s scary.
