Breaking down Houston, BYU's Week 8 opponent
BYU's football team is leaving the state of Utah for the first time since Week 1 to face Houston in a Cougars vs. Cougars fight.
Interestingly enough, Houston is the only undefeated team left on BYU's schedule, and the Cougars in Scarlet look impressive as they lead the nation in turnover margin. However, Houston's opponents so far have a combined 10-20 record, leading many to wonder just how good this team really is.
From offense to defense and special teams, here's what you need to know about the Houston Cougars.
