2021 Myrtle Beach Bowl Preview

The 2021 Myrtle Beach Bowl features the 6-6 Tulsa Golden Hurricane against the 6-6 Old Dominion Monarchs. Here is the 2021 Myrtle Beach Bowl Preview.

Tulsa Golden Hurricanes (6-6)

Tulsa was able to win their last three games of the season to reach bowl eligibility. They were able to beat two bowl-eligible teams: Memphis and SMU. Of their six losses, one was to FCS-level UC Davis, while another was to Navy, who didn’t qualify for a bowl game.

The Golden Hurricanes scored 26.4 points per game, tying them for 84th in the country. They rush for 187.7 yards (ranked 38th) and pass for 248.7 yards per game (tied for 51st).

Davis Brin has been under center for the Golden Hurricanes this season. He has been a bit uneven with 2,969 passing yards, 16 touchdowns and 16 interceptions on 58.8 percent completion. Four of his receivers have over 350 yards on the season. Josh Johnson leads the team with 75 receptions for 985 yards and five touchdowns. JuanCarlos Santana has been the second option with 44 receptions for 599 yards and three touchdowns. Sam Crawford Jr. and Ezra Naylor II have been productive with 472 and 389 passing yards.

Shamari Brooks is the leading rusher for Tulsa with 922 yards and six touchdowns. Anthony Watkins and Deneric Prince have also received a lot of carries and have 579 and 480 rushing yards respectively.

The defense has allowed 27.4 points per game, ranking them 78th in the country. They give up 149.4 rushing yards (ranked 63rd) and 231.8 passing yards per game (ranked 71st). Linebackers Justin Wright and Yohance Burnett lead the team with 77 and 75 tackles on the year. Defensive lineman Anthony Goodlow paces the team with six sacks.

Old Dominion Monarchs (6-6)

Old Dominion went on a five-game winning streak to end the season to become bowl eligible. Their win over Middle Tennessee was their lone victory over a bowl-eligible team. The Monarchs’ loss to Buffalo was their only defeat to a team that didn’t qualify for a bowl game.

The Monarchs score 28.3 points per game, ranking them 68th in the country. They rush for 165.6 yards (ranked 60th) and pass for 218 yards per game (ranked 78th).

Darriel Mack started the year at quarterback, but Hayden Wolff has since taken over. He has passed for 1,757 yards, 10 touchdowns and six interceptions on 62.2 percent completion.  Two pass-catchers have been big producers for the Monarchs. Ali Jennings III has 56 catches for 992 yards and five touchdowns. Tight end Zack Kuntz has 71 catches for 674 yards and five touchdowns.

Running back Blake Watson has led the running game with 1,035 yards and seven touchdowns. Behind him, Elijah Davis rushed for 575 yards and six touchdowns on the season.

Old Dominion allows 27.6 points per game, ranking 77th. The Monarchs give up 125 rushing yards (ranked 27th) and 247.1 passing yards per game (ranked 99th). Linebacker Jordan Young has 83 total tackles to lead the team. Safety R’Tarriun Johnson tied for the team lead with six passes defended and also had 78 tackles for the Monarchs.

Prediction

Tulsa has a little bit more talented team and that will show on the field in this game. The offense can move the ball more effectively than Old Dominion, which will be the difference.
