Houston is down, but not out. If this game were played in Memphis, I would be concerned for the Cougars. Having home field advantage is a big advantage for them (hence the three point favorite), but they will have their hands full. Their experience against Texas Tech should help them against the Tigers offense, but they need their own offense to score as well. Doing so against an improving Memphis defense may prove to be more difficult than expected. So while, the Cougars defense may keep the score low, the offense might not do enough to keep up.
