Hous­ton over TULSA by 3

The Cougars beat im­prov­ing SMU, 35-22, last week but were out­gained 544-463, and have now been out­stat­ted in two of their last three games. RB Duke Cat­alon has done his part, rush­ing for 177 yards and 2 TDs ver­sus the Mus­tangs, in­clud­ing a 52-yarder that gave the Cougs some breath­ing room after SMU had pulled to within 2 points mid­way through the 3rd quar­ter. With a re­venger on deck against Mem­phis after the Tigers won a 48-44 cat­fight last sea­son in Tom Her­man’s fi­nal game at Hous­ton, this looks like it has ‘upset’ writ­ten all over it. That sce­nario is de­spite Tulsa’s puz­zling blowout loss at Tu­lane, but then this Hur­ri­cane de­fense can rarely stop a fart (No. 125 in first-down de­fense), much less a trop­i­cal storm gust. Still, they were a 10-win team last sea­son and are an aveng­ing Home­com­ing dog to­day, plus they are also fea­tured in Marc’s as it tells us to: Play On any sub .400 col­lege foot­ball home team off
