what to know

The Houston Cougars have been 3-1 against the Temple Owls since December 2015, and they will have a chance to extend that success on Saturday. Houston and Temple will face off in an American Athletic battle at 3pm ET at TDECU Stadium. Keep an eye on the scoring for this one: both teams have recorded some high point totals in their previous games, so things could heat up even more when they meet.

The Cougars fell short of the SMU Mustangs last week, dropping 77-63. Houston may have lost, but man – QB Clayton Tune was a total machine. He passed for seven TDs and 527 yards on 53 attempts, as well as rushing for a TD and 111 yards. That nimble footwork stands out as the first time Tune has hit the 100-yard mark this season.

Meanwhile, Temple won the matchup against the South Florida Bulls last week by a conclusive score of 54-28. The score was close to halftime, but Temple walked away in the second half with 38 points. RB Edward Saydee was a one-man wrecking crew for the Owls, rushing for three touchdowns and 265 yards on 23 carries. Saydee put himself in the spotlight with a 75-yard TD in the third quarter. Saydee’s sharp performance set his single-game rushing touchdown for the season.

Special teams collected 18 points for Temple. K Camden Price delivered a perfect 4-for-4 game.

The Cougars are favorites in this one, with an expected margin of victory of 20 points. But bettors beware: they are only 1-5 against the spread when they are favoured.

Houston is now 5-4 while the Owls are 3-6. A couple of stats to keep an eye on: Houston enters the competition with the 15th most rushing yards per game in the country, with 304.8. But Temple enters the game with just 169.2 passing yards per game, on average, eighth-best in the country. We will see which of these strengths – offense or defense – will win.
