Tulsa looks to snap 17-game skid vs. Arkansas

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) -- Tulsa coach Bill Blankenship would love nothing more than to snap a 17-game losing streak against Arkansas on Saturday.

The Golden Hurricane (7-1, 5-0 Conference USA) have won seven straight since a season-opening loss at Iowa State and appear poised to challenge the disappointing Razorbacks (3-5, 2-3 Southeastern Conference).

Arkansas has already matched its loss total from the previous two seasons combined and must win three of its final four games -- against teams that are a combined 28-5 -- to become bowl eligible. The Razorbacks will be without tight end Chris Gragg (leg), running back Knile Davis (hamstring) and receiver Brandon Mitchell (violation of team rules) this week.

Tulsa quarterback Cody Green is expected to play after missing a win over Rice with a shoulder injury.
