I think the Houston Cougars were challenged and felt disrespected last week as they were posted as a home underdog against UT San Antonio. The Cougars sent a clear message, Our defense is going to stop your offense and turn you over. That was the aftermath of a 17-14 upset win. That brings us to Rice who had a tough time on offense vs. a very good Texas defense as the Owls were held to 10 points, 176 total yards, and turned the ball over three times. There is no doubt the best unit on the field by far will be the Houston defense, Rice struggled to that effect last week, and I don't see that changing this week. Make the play on Houston.
