TULSA, Okla. -

The University of Tulsa's first game as a top 25 team in 10 years was, like a handful of other games, a nail biter. The team came back from a 14-0 deficit to head to overtime with a Hail Mary play. 

The Golden Hurricane have now won four games by eight points or less. Tulsa's play-by-play announcer Bruce Howard said the best quality that the team has is not their talent, but their will to win. 

"It was just tremendous to see these young student-athletes come through in clutch situations time and time again," Howard said. 

With COVID-19 changing the college football schedule regularly, the Golden Hurricane have still found success.

TU junior Libby Hoy, who was at the game, said even though there was a reduced crowd, it was the best game she has been to as a student. She also said that the resilience of the team during COVID-19, makes the season even better 

"I’m so extremely proud of our school and of the football team and the coaches and the hard work they've put in considering the time that we're in with this pandemic," Hoy said.
