This matchup is critcial to determining who will win the American Athletic West division. Both teams are 4-2 in conference, so a loss will pretty much eliminate either team.
Last year Tulane pulled the upset over Houston by a score of 20-17. Although the Green Wave have only won two of the last ten meetings with Houston, this will be their chance to win two in a row.
Tulane Green Wave
The Green Wave have an overall record 5-5, but their 4-2 conference record has given them a chance to make it to the conference championship.
The Green Wave lack the expolsive scoring offense that their opponents have. They only score an average of 26.2 points per game, putting them in the bottom half of division one football. Look for the Green Wave to have some success on the ground, but struggle to keep up with the Cougars.
This game will likely come down to whether or not the Green Wave defense can keep their team in the game. They allow an average of 25.8 points per game, which is a decent stat, but with how Houston can score the ball, they will need a few turnovers to give their team a real chance to pull the upset.
Houston has lost both their conference games in the last two weeks, putting their hopes of a conference title in grave danger. They must win this game and hope SMU, who has the tiebreaker, loses another game in the next two weeks.
The Cougars have a top 5 scoring offense in the country this year. They average 47.8 points per game, which ranks 4th. Look for their quarterback, D’Eriq King to have a field day through the air and help the Cougars pick up a win with his legs and his arm.
As mentioned, the Cougars’ defense has not played well in their past two games. They have allowed an average of 52 points in the past two weeks, which is precisely why they are in trouble. Look for the defense to bounce back in this game and dominate the Green Wave.
