About Houston: More D’Eriq King, please, Houston. The explosive playmaker from Manvel caught an 18-yard TD for the Cougars’ first score against SMU, then threw a 22-yard TD to Postma to put them on top for good in a 35-22 win. The Cougars’ defense held the Mustangs well below their season scoring average, and Oliver posted four tackles, three QB hurries and one pass breakup while playing at less than 100 percent with a brace on his injured left knee.

About Tulsa: The Golden Hurricane suffered their fourth consecutive setback since posting their only win of the season against Louisiana-Lafayette (66-42) on Sept. 9. QB Luke Skipper came off the bench to give them a spark against Tulane, throwing for 256 yards and one TD, but it wasn’t nearly enough to overcome a defense that gave up 653 yards, including 488 on the ground - at a 7.0 yards per carry clip.
