Old rivals Tulsa, UCF meet for first time as AAC members

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- When UCF and Tulsa have met in the past, it's typically been with a conference championship at stake.

Will the UCF Knights Bounce Back Against Tulsa?

AAC Basketball Preview: #6 Tulsa Golden Hurricane

The Sports Bank’s college basketball season previews undergo a face lift this season. Rather than counting down the top 111 teams in 111 days, we will go conference-by-conference.  I’ve already counted down the Pac-12, Big 12, and SEC, and now turn my attention to the already new-look AAC.

Next Four Games Critical For Tulsa’s Bowl Hopes

To illustrate how impactful Tulsa’s beating from FAU is, I probably wouldn’t be writing this column if Tulsa was 2-1.
