Cincy guys giving their prediction
Getting a guy like Allen at quarterback is almost unfair. The Cougars already got to run Ward Jr. out there for a few years and now they get a former elite prospect. With Bonner and Catalon making plays and Noble anchoring the line up front, the Cougars should be just fine offensively and Oliver will ensure this team still clamps down on defense. Its not going to be an easy go for Applewhite in year one, but it should be a successful one. Mark Houston down for eight wins and a bowl appearance.
