After two games on the road, Houston is heading back home. Their bye week comes to an end as they meet up with Cincinnati at 3:30 p.m. ET at TDECU Stadium on Saturday. Houston won both of their matches against Cincinnati last season (33-30 and 40-16) and is aiming for the same result this time around.
How To Watch
The Cougars made easy work of North Texas two weeks ago and carried off a 46-25 victory. RB Patrick Carr had a stellar game for Houston as he rushed for 139 yards and three TDs on 16 carries. That nimble footwork stands out as the first time Carr has hit the 100-yard rushing mark this season.
Meanwhile, Cincinnati lost to UCF when the two teams last met in November of last year, but they didn’t allow UCF the same satisfaction this time around. The Bearcats came out on top in a nail-biter against UCF last Friday, sneaking past 27-24. The win was familiar territory for the Bearcats, who now have three in a row.
The Cougars are expected to lose this next one by 8.5. However, those who like betting on the underdog should be happy to hear that they are 3-1 against the spread when expected to lose.
Their wins bumped the Cougars to 2-3 and the Bearcats to 4-1. We’ll see which team can carry over their success and which team inevitably falls when Houston and the Bearcats clash.
