The University of Tulsa has a big rematch coming this Thursday. They welcome Iowa State to Chapman Stadium for a Liberty Bowl match-up with the Cyclones.The 31-17 win over Iowa State was Tulsa's 11th of the 2012 season. Tulsa head coach Bill Blankenship said it was probably the best game his team has played since he's been the head coach. But the two teams that will face off Thursday are so different from the ones that met in Memphis back in December."Philosophically you don't see much change in either one of us. But there are a lot of personnel changes." said Blankenship, "I would go so far as to say that there will be at least 30 new faces on the field with both teams. Maybe more than that. That were not an active big part of the Liberty Bowl. So there will be a lot of new faces." The Golden Hurricane and the Cyclones kickoff Thursday at 6:30pm from TU's Chapman Stadium.
