The No. 25 Tulsa Hurricanes are putting together a magical season, and they took it to new levels in a 30-24 victory over Tulane in double overtime on Thursday night.

Tulsa’s No. 1 and 2 quarterbacks — Zach Smith and Seth Boomer — left the game due to injury, leaving it all up to third-stringer Davis Brin. Well, expect Brin to move up the depth chart.

Brin didn’t enter the game until late in the third quarter, and completed 18-of-28 passes for 266 yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions. He also added a rushing touchdown. This is after Smith and Boomer combined for 9-of-19 passing for 77 yards. Tulsa trailed 14-0 when Brin entered the game late in the third quarter.

And the way Brin capped off his performance was on one of the college football plays of the year, with this Hail Mary pass to JuanCarlos Santana as time expired in the fourth quarter. Tulsa tied the game on the extra point.

This is already crazy enough, but let’s fast-forward to double overtime with the game tied 24-24.

Tulane had third-and-goal at the three-yard line, in great shape to get a go-ahead field goal at the very least. But Tulane quarterback Michael Pratt was picked off by Tulsa star linebacker Zaven Collins (a potential first-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft), who took it to the house for a walk-off 96-yard pick-six.

An incredible performance and comeback by a third-string quarterback, a Hail Mary to send the game to overtime, and a 96-yard walk-off pick-six with the game tied in double overtime. Amazing.

And this comes after another wild comeback for the Golden Hurricane just five days ago! Tulsa trailed then-No. 19 SMU 21-0, and came back to win 28-24.

They’re now 4-0 this season when trailing by 14-plus points. The last team to even have four such comeback wins in a season was UCLA in 2005.

Tulsa follows this up with a game at Houston on Nov. 28, before hosting No. 7 Cincinnati — originally scheduled for Oct. 15; postponed due to COVID — on Dec. 4 in what should be a fun one.
