EL PASO, Texas (AP) Conference USA Western Division co-leaders UTEP and Tulsa will clash tomorrow in El Paso, Texas.

The Miners have won three straight games and seven in a row in El Paso. But the Golden Hurricane has also been on a roll. Tulsa has rebounded from an oh-and-2 start to win five of its last six games, and also carries a three-game winning streak.

TU has beaten UTEP three straight times, including last year's 37-to-35 upset of the 24th-ranked Miners in Tulsa.

The Golden Hurricane has scored over 30 points in three of four road games this season. It ranks 12th nationally in turnover margin, and has committed just 13 miscues in eight games while forcing 22.
