I know Houston has only played one game but this is still a battle of unbeaten, and Cougars.
BYU has been impressive but this is probably their toughest challenge to date, and likely for the season.
Houston has only one data point but there is a lot of optimism right now.
After three impressive wins to start the season the Cougars didn’t quite put away UTSA the way we expected last week. Winning by just 7.
All of their numbers on the offensive and defensive sides of the ball are very strong.
On offense, the Cougars are 5th in total yards per game and 6th in scoring. Zack Wilson is putting up amazing numbers, including completing 81% of his passes.
On defense the numbers are really good too, fourth in yards and points allowed. To be fair they have not played a lot of creative offences though.
If BYU want to be considered for anything significant this season they have to in and make a statement in this one.
Houston finally played their first game of the season last week, beating Tulane 49-31. It was a classic game where you have to look a little deeper than the final score.
You see those 31 points and you think the defense was suspect but Tulane scored one TD on an interception and another on a kick return. The defense only gave up 211 total yards.
Houston more than doubled that with 476 yards. Clayton Tune was pretty good but he threw a couple of picks, including the pick-six. It was the first action of the season.
Houston was obviously a little rusty for that first game. They can be better and this is a good test. If they win the AAC will be on notice.

BYU is getting a lot of respect here. They were not great a week ago, and travel, and Houston is pretty good, we think.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Houston +5.5
I am picking Houston to win outright so the points are a nice cushion just in case. I would recommend going sooner than later here though. Odds are the public backs the home underdog and pushed the line down.
This one will be close though. Probably a see-saw affair. BYU is physical so it make take Houston a little time to adjust. They figure it out and win on the last drive.
