what to know

The Houston Cougars have had a week off and are certainly ready to get back on the field. They’ll hit the road for the second week in a row when they head to Jack Stephens Field at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium at noon Saturday. With 972 combined yards of offense in their previous games, we can expect a fast-paced game.

Two weeks ago, Houston won a matchup that couldn’t have been more even, beating the Memphis Tigers 33-32. The win came thanks to a strong rally after the first quarter to overcome a 14-nil deficit. Cougars QB Clayton Tune did his thing, throwing for three touchdowns and 366 yards of 57 attempts, as well as scoring a rushing touchdown. That was Tune’s first 300-plus-yard effort this season.

Houston’s defense was also in attendance, as it got past the Tigers’ offensive line to sack the quarterback four times for a total loss of 21 yards. It was a group effort with five guys contributing.

Meanwhile, the Navy Midshipmen came close to stealing the victory, but took the “L” against the 40-34 SMU Mustangs. A silver lining for the Midshipmen was the play of QB Tai Lavatai, who passed for two TDs and 136 yards of 20 attempts in addition to rushing for two TDs and 121 yards. That nimble footwork stands out as Lavatai’s first time reaching the 100-yard rushing mark this season. Lavatai’s strong performance also set his single-game rushing touchdown at a season high.

This upcoming contest is expected to be a close one, with the Cougars coming away with just a 3-point favorite. Those who got lucky with them against the spread two weeks ago may want to postpone the bets this time, as the team has yet to string together consecutive wins against the spread.
