Last season, the Houston Cougars went to UCLA and got the doors blown off, losing a couple of quarterbacks in the process. This year, they will host the Bruins in downtown Houston and they’ll look to reclaim a little bit of pride. Always a difficult place to play, Houston has been a venue that has given CUSA teams fits over the years. Will it give the PAC-10’s Bruins the same kind of difficulty?

The big question here is how well Houston quarterback Case Keenum bounces back from his season-ending knee injury. With Keenum at the helm, the Cougars are one of the most dynamic offenses in the country. Slotted as a three point favorite  in college football picks over the Bruins, this could be one of those games where the public loads up on the road underdog, only to watch the Cougars run away in a high flying type of game.

The Aggies of Utah State come calling and open as just worse than a three touchdown underdog at defending national champion Auburn. How will the Tigers look one year after winning it all and without the services of Cam Newton? That is the big question that remains mostly unanswered heading into the new year. One thing is for sure and that is that Auburn still has plenty of weapons.

The Tigers still boast a dynamic backfield and a fleet of good receivers. Though they’ve lost a lot on defense, Auburn should still be formidable. The problem with this game is that the 22-point line looks like a trap. In a home game to open the year, many people expect the Tigers to blow the doors off of the mostly unknown Utah State squad. That might not be the case, though, and this game could be closer than many are expecting.

The Eagles boast a defense with multiple All-ACC candidates. Likewise, BC should be strong on the lines like they usually are.
