All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Houston vs Temple Game Preview


Why Houston Will Win

Temple has been flat-out awful.

The offense hasn’t hit 300 yards in any of its last four games, the defense has fallen off a cliff, and it’s having a hard time cranking things up down the field or controlling games.

Meanwhile, Houston is just quietly rolling along.

The AAC might be all Cincinnati, Cincinnati, Cincinnati right now, but the Cougar defense is playing better, the pass rush is among the best in the country, and the offense is coming off of one of its best performances of the season in a 54-42 win over USF.

So what’s the problem?

Why Temple Will Win

The Houston offensive line isn’t doing a great job of controlling defensive fronts that can get into the backfield.

Temple might not have much of a pass rush, but it’s not bad at getting behind the line. There’s a big problem against the run, but this might be the week the D gets a bit of a break against a Cougar ground game that sputtered a bit before going off on USF.

The Owls have to rise up and get the passing attack going. It had a few nice moments early in the year, and it’s going to have to push for well over 240 yards to pull this off.

They’re 3-0 when they get to 250 passing yards, 0-6 when they don’t.

What’s Going To Happen

Houston is playing too well.

It might not be perfect, and it could use better all-around play from the offensive front, but the world is going to start suggesting that the American Athletic Conference Championship could be a whole lot of fun.

The College Football Playoff-ranked Cougars are going to keep moving up.
