G.J. Kinne's season has been filled with showdowns against college football's best quarterbacks. For his next one, there's a championship on the line.
Kinne leads Tulsa against Case Keenum and No. 8 Houston (11-0, 7-0 C-USA) on Friday with the winner earning the chance to host the Conference USA championship game the following weekend. If he can't lead the Golden Hurricane (8-3, 7-0) to victory, it will be the last home game of his college career.
Tulsa's only losses this season have come against top 10 opponents - Oklahoma State, Boise State and Oklahoma. But Kinne, who decided to play through a knee injury this season, gets one last chance at a defining home victory.
