Temple (5-4) vs. Houston (7-2) Game Preview
What’s Going To Happen
Can Houston quickly rally back after a stunning clunker against SMU last week? The Cougars are still in the lead for the West race, but they’ve got to deal with a Temple team that’s still in the fight for the East, despite the firefight loss to UCF last week.
Get ready for a whole lot of yards, and a whole lot of points.
The Cougar offense went flat last week, but the passing game and the offense is too good to be that ineffective again. If not, it’s uh-oh time against a Temple passing game that destroyed the Knights for 470 yards passing last week with four scores.
However, as good as Anthony Russo has been, he’s also throwing picks, giving away 12 on the year and five over the last two games. That has to be where the Cougars step in.
Houston might be dead last in the nation in pass defense, but D’Eriq King has to become special again. The Cougar quarterback threw for over 400 yards in two games in a row, and now, at home against the league’s best pass defense, he’ll rally back in a firefight.
These two will trade shots all game long, but Houston will come up with a two extra takeaways to overcome yet another massive game from Russo.
