LOSS

The Cougars have an explosive offense and after a poor 1-3 start to their season, they have caught fire. The Cougs have gone 5-1 in their last six. They have out-scored their last two opponents 112-44, and when you consider one of them was Tulsa, this team has my attention now. They have put up an amazing 1,334 yards in their last two games alone! That is bad news for a Miner team that ranks 108th out of 120 teams on defense. Coming off peak performances like that inflate the totals line, as Houston in their six prior games averaged 34.3 ppg. The Miners can move the ball as well, but just two of their games have reached this many points scored on the season. Despite the offensive hype, eight of the last eleven Cougar conference games have gone UNDER, and four of the last five Miner games have played UNDER after they allow 275 yards or less. I like the Cougars here as well as the UNDER.
