UH did face Tate in Arizona. He may not have started against the Coogs but he did get into the game:
“UH didn’t face QB Khalil Tate last year in Tucson but he leads an offense that finished #3 in rushing in 2017. Tate ran for 1411 yards & 12 TDs despite not starting until week 6.”
And I don’t understand the reference to breaking in a new QB for UH with King coming back. I guess he could get competition but that seems to be a stretch at this point. King has an arm and has elite speed. We will see I guess.
Overall, the schedule seems to be in the Coogs’ favor in 2018.
