Houston has a very good chance of getting some national attention this season. The Cougars will play against a couple of big name schools and other good football programs.

They play Oklahoma State at Oklahoma and Texas Tech at home. The Texas Tech game is very big. As a student at the University of Houston, I will definitely be rooting for them to win.

I feel if they can win those two games, it is very likely they could go undeafeated.

Houston has a very high powered offense that almost reminds me of the Colts because any play could be a touchdown.

With quarterback Case Keenam—who threw for over 5,000 yards and 44 TDs in 2008—along with wide receiver Tyron Carrier and running back Bryce Beall, the Cougars will be a force to be reckoned with.

I expect the Cougars to be much better in their second year under Coach Sumlin.

After a tough loss to Oklahoma State, I think they will be fired up and ready to go this year. I also think they will again win against Texas Tech.

If they do win in those two weeks, I think they will carry the momentum with them the whole year and go undefeated. They could quite possible go to a BCS Bowl game for the first time in many years.
