Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

The University of Tulsa is known for its academic excellence and 44 members of the football team helped prove that by finishing with a 3.0 or higher this past fall.

Balancing a busy football schedule along with a busy class schedule is far from easy but many members of the team managed to make it work while achieving academic success.

TU ranks number 86 in the 2016 national edition of Best Colleges by U.S. News.
