Washington State Cougars
Washington State has had no issues scoring through their first two games.
The Cougars come in with one of the best offenses through the first two weeks of the season as they look to deal with their toughest competition to this point in the season.
Washington State started things off with 58 points against New Mexico State and 59 against Northern Colorado.
Their 58.5 points per game average is 5th in the nation as the have lit up the opposition with the pass game.
The Cougars sit 2nd in the NCAA, averaging 494 yards through the air. QB Anthony Gordon has accounted for 884 yards and 9 touchdowns thus far.
This will certainly be his toughest defense scene, but Houston has struggled with the pass game.
Houston has been sub par through their first two games.
They were rocked by Oklahoma in their season opener in a game where their defense was a huge issue. That doesn’t bode well for them by any means in as the Cougars offense is just as threatening, if not more.
Last week was a very underwhelming performance as well. They took down Prairie View just 37-17 as they really couldn’t get any sort of rhythm on the offense end. Houston failed to cover the 36 points spread as they dropped to 1-1 ATS this season.
Offensively, Houston has to find a way to pick things up.
QB D’Eriq King was expected to put up some big numbers here in 2019, but has racked up only 306 yards and 3 touchdowns through air. Look for them to open the playbook and as they know the offensive style has to be aggressive against this Washington State team.
