The University of Tulsa hopes to wrap up regular season play with a win at home. The Golden Hurricane (7-4, 4-3) will face the Green Wave (4-7, 2-5) of Tulane Friday afternoon.

TU has lost three straight, to Houston 27-10, Rice 41-38 and SMU 34-24.

Tulane is coming off a one point win over Central Florida, 10-9.

The Green Wave is without their leading rusher, running back Matt Forte. He was knocked out for the season because of a knee injury. In nine games Forte rushed for 859 yard, he's the 4th leading rusher in C-USA.

Twenty Tulsa seniors will play in Skelly Stadium for the final time on Friday, but it won't be the end of their college careers. Tulsa (7-4) will go bowling. The possibilities include the GMAC Bowl, Birmingham Bowl, Armed Forces Bowl, and the New Orleans Bowl.

TU wraps up their regular season against Tulane, kickoff is at 2 o'clock Friday afternoon at Skelly Stadium.
