Two teams from the AAC will be facing off when the Houston Cougars visit the Temple Owls. The kickoff is set for 12:00 ET on Saturday.
Houston is coming off of a win and Temple is coming off of a loss.
The Cougars opened up as 24.5 point favorites and I have really not seen that number change. Also, I have seen the total stay right around 54.
Houston has had a very good season so far. Cincinnati gets a lot of attention in the American Athletic Conference, but people should be showing some love to this squad as well.
The Cougars took care of the USF Bulls last week by a score of 54-42. They will never complain about a win, but I am sure they did not want to give up that many points to a bad team in South Florida.
Against the Bulls, quarterback Clayton Tune was 21/26 for 385 yards with 3 touchdown passes. I look for him to have another good day when he goes against a defense in Temple that is frankly very bad.
The offense was very balanced for this team a week ago. Ta’Zhawn Henry had 10 carries for 130 yards and Alton McCaskill had 22 carries for 125 yards. As for the receivers, Nathaniel Dell had 8 receptions for 164 yards and KeSean Carter had 6 receptions for 123 yards. There is no excuse for this group to have an unproductive day when they face Temple.
The defense has been good at times and they have also allowed a lot of points at times. I expect this unit to have a good day when they face an offense in Temple that has not been scoring a ton of points. It would surprise me if they allowed the Owls to have a big day on offense.
Nobody really thought this Temple team would be good this year and so far that has been very true. They just do not have the talent to compete with a lot of the teams they play against.
Last week, the Owls fell to East Carolina by a score of 45-3. It is not even like they lost to a powerhouse, they are just that bad of a football team. They can make teams who are average look amazing.
The quarterback position against the Pirates was horrendous. The most that either guy threw was 37 yards. It is amazing that this is division 1 football we are talking about–unbelievable!
It is hard to say anything positive about the offense when they only score 3 points. Not scoring a lot of points has been a theme of this football team so far and it would explain why they have simply been very bad the whole year.
The defense is also very flawed. They often give up lots of points to teams. I have no clue how they are going to stop the Cougars on Saturday. I think this game could get very ugly for the Owls.

Free Week 11 NCAA Football Pick
Given how bad Temple is, I am not sure how good of a game this will be. I am not going into this expecting a thriller.
I like Houston as a -24.5 fave in this one.
4* Free Week 11 NCAA Betting Pick:
It would really shock me if this game turns out to be competitive. I feel that Houston will wipe the floor with this team.
This is a game that Houston cannot fool around in. They have to show up and get to work and not let up. You cannot make this game remotely close against a team like this.
Yes, 24.5 is a very high number to lay, but I just do not trust the Owls to keep this thing close. I can see this game being a laugher in no time.
My play is on the Cougars laying 24 and the hook here.
