This American Athletic conference game will feature the undefeated Houston Cougars and the Temple Owls.
The last time these two teams met the Houston Cougars blew out the Temple Owls 80-59. Temple will now look to snap a three game losing streak to the Cougars and hand them their first loss of the year.
Houston has obviously had a fantastic season so far as they have yet to lose a game. They will be looking to move up in the rankings and continue to be one of the only teams yet to lose.
The Cougars offense has really only been average this season. They only score about 75.5 points per game, ranking them at 146th. Their main strength is rebounding the ball. They average 42.9 rebounds per game and will be why they find success on the offensive side of the ball against the Owls.
The Cougars’ defense is the main reason why they are one of the last remaining unbeaten teams. They allow an 8th best 59.2 points per game. They also only allow opponents to shoot 36.2% from the field, which is 2nd best in the country. As for three point shooting, their opponents shoot 26.4%, which is 5th best in the country.
The Owls come into this game with a 1-1 record in the American conference. With a win, it will not only put them back near the top of the conference, but it will also be an upset of an undefeated and ranked team for the Owls to add to their resume.
The Owls do not have any offensive stat that stands out this season. They average just under 75 points per game and also shoot just under 45% from the field. Based on their lack of offense, they will likely struggle against a top 10 defense.
Like the offense there is nothing that stands out for the Owls defense. The best stat they have is they allow under 70 points per game, which will be a key to taking down the Cougars.
