The AAC has been much better than expected this season. They lost one of their undefeateds last week but Houston has a great shot to remain so at home.
The Bearcats can be a tough out. When things are clicking they can really light up the scoreboard.
The Bearcats are a good team. They have a very productive offense and can hold their own with most programs in the country.
The AAC seems to have taken a leap this season thanks to the performance of Houston, Memphis and Temple so far.
After those three the Bearcats appear to be the next best team.
This season Cincinnati’s best chance to win is to outscore their opponents.
When QB Gunner Kiel is healthy he is lethal, putting up 300 yards games with ease thanks to a very deep and skilled receiving corps. This group can definitely keep up in a back and forth affair.
That puts it all on a defense that has been only average this season.
As a result if Kiel is off or things like penalties or turnovers trip them up they are not able to overcome. This would be a great spot to come up with a great defensive effort.
The Bearcats have won this game the last couple of years, both by exactly seven points, but they are pretty big dogs this week.
The Cougars do not have any signature wins this season but they have been dominating their schedule, winning every game save one by at least 14 points. The only close one was at Louisville.
If they want to make this season special they need to keep winning and hope that Memphis does too so they are both undefeated in a couple of weeks when the host the Tigers.
The Cougars are still one of the better offensive programs in America but they are not as pass heavy as they used to be.
Quarterback Greg Ward Jr. is probably not an NFL prospect but there are few who combine running and throwing ability like he does. He has 25 combined TDs.
Houston has been helping to cash tickets all season long. They are 6-2 ATS as they keep getting underrated.
