Motivation Won't Be An Issue For Tulsa

This Saturday the Tulsa Golden hurricane will play for the Conference USA Championship for the fourth time since joining the league in 2005.

That means they've played for the title half of the years they've been in the conference.

But Tulsa only has one championship to show for it. To get #2 they're going to have to go through another hard fought contest against Central Florida.

Tulsa Head Coach Bill Blankenship says motivation will not be an issue.

"It's a goal they've had since day one of off season." Blankenship said, "You know their are other goals out there, but that is the one that we've you know 99 percent of everytime we break a huddle it's conference champs. We have an opportunity to play for that and an opportunity to play in the Liberty Bowl. We think that's pretty important."

The Golden Hurricane host the Knights of Central Florida this Saturday at 11:00am at Chapman Stadium.
