Tulane vs. UCF Prediction, Pick, Odds: Can Tyjae Spears and Tulane Stay Undefeated in the AAC?

The AAC will give us an exciting matchup on Saturday.

The UCF Knights will take on the Tulane Green Wave in a Top-25 match in the American Athletic Conference.

Tulane is currently undefeated in conference play, while UCF has one loss. However, if UCF earns a win over Tulane, they'd take over in first place due to winning the tie-breaker.

The AAC hasn't been given much love this year after having two outstanding teams, Houston and Cincinnati, last year. But with Tulane and UCF both ranked headed into their matchup on Saturday, the conference is finally getting some love again.

Here are our picks, predictions, and odds for Saturday's game between the Tulane Green Wave vs. UCF Knights.

Tulane Green Wave vs. UCF Knights Prediction

The Tulane Green Wave has earned five straight wins in AAC play. The Green Wave has won each of their last four games by more than a touchdown; including wins over East Carolina, South Florida, Memphis, and Tulsa. Saturday's game against UCF will undoubtedly be Tulane's toughest challenge in the AAC this season. The Green Wave scored 32.9 points per game while giving up 16.9 points. The offense has averaged 418.7 points behind Michael Pratt at quarterback. Pratt has thrown 14 touchdowns and has limited interceptions to four. He's got a QBR of 60.9 and has thrown for 1,843 yards. Tulane's a balanced offense with 180.2 yards rushing per game. Tyjae Spears has run 134 times and has ten touchdowns while averaging 5.6 yards per carry. The offense has done well with a solid pass protection unit and a good enough run block. But it's the defense that has set Tulane apart. Tulane's run defense has allowed 127 yards per game, but it's been better than the box score. The coverage has also been elite for Tulane, holding teams to 180.3 yards passing per game. The Green Wave has a solid pass rush, but it's still the weakest area of the defense.

Meanwhile, UCF has won four of its last five games. The Knights won against Cincinnati at home a couple of weeks ago, winning 25-21. UCF has earned over 500 yards on offense, with nearly 240 yards coming on the ground. John Rhys Plumlee has practically done it all for the Knights. He's thrown for 1,883 yards with 11 touchdowns and six interceptions. He's also rushed 108 times for 532 yards and seven more touchdowns. The Knights have an excellent pass protection unit and do well in running game blocking. On the other hand, the defense isn't nearly as good as Tulane's, but they manage to produce some good things. They've held teams to 241 yards in the air and 121.1 yards on the ground. The run defense and coverage have been outstanding, but like Tulane, the pass rush is easily the weakest portion of their defense. I like UCF's offense more, but I believe Tulane's defense will do enough against UCF's offense to win the game at home. Give me Tulane at -1.5.
