TULSA, Okla. (AP) _ The Tulsa Golden Hurricane are getting ready for a Tuesday night Conference USA game against Southern Mississippi at Skelly Stadium.

Coach Steve Kragthorpe says being off on Saturday but playing on Tuesday is like a ``mini open date.''

The team began preparing for Southern Miss Thursday _ treating Thursday as if it were a Monday during a regular game week.

After Tuesday's game the Hurricane will be off until October 14th when the team travels to East Carolina.
