  • This Houston program is in turmoil, Seniors are quitting and reportedly the UH administration and head coach is actively tanking this season. Hard to know which Cougars team shows up today but I think Cincinnati wins here by double digits.

    My Pick: Cincinnati -7 70%

    • I wanted to take Houston on the upset but after hearing this news that Houston is Tanking under Dana Holgerson from a player that quit the program this week, I have no faith in them. Redshirting your best players doesn't usually equate to wins and is certainly peculiar. Cincinnati has a pair of dominant CBs that will shut down the passing game. They upset UCF last week and if you can do that, beating this lost Houston Program shouldn't be a problem. The Bearcats defense is top notch and I don't see how Houston's defense giving up +32 pts/game can stop them while also putting points on the board with a young, inexperienced QB.

      My Pick: Cincinnati -7

            UC football coach Luke Fickell discusses the Bearcats' win against UCF ahead of this weekend's trip to Houston. Fletcher Page, fpage@enquirer..com

            HOUSTON - The No. 25 Cincinnati Bearcats started strong and survived a sluggish third quarter in a 38-23 victory against Houston Saturday.

            UC (5-1, 2-0) quarterback Desmond Ridder passed for three touchdowns and rushed for another and sophomore safety Ja'von Hicks intercepted two passes and recovered a fumble in front of 25,716 at TDECU Stadium.

            After Houston (2-4, 0-2) pulled to within 21-17 in the third quarter, Ridder connected with running back Michael Warren for a touchdown and linebacker Perry Young intercepted a deflected pass and scored to finish off the Bearcats' eighth win in the past 10 AAC contests dating back to last season.
